Always funny watching the same machine go into sales again and again, basically when people do not view and bid blind. The below allwin sold at least twice, in the last Americana sale for £400 and in April for £420......Case looks nice as well as backflash, but it is an automatic electric payout machine, with no payouts slide and missing solenoid .....I am sure we will see it again soon......also anyone get this mutoscope during the week from Astons?

Steve is claiming 500k turnover ( over what period I'm not sure) but with the current VAT threshold @ £81k, which would be applied to commission turnover, a bump can be expected anytime soon.

I'll have to get back to you on what it made but condition was average to poor in my opinion, the graphics being quite faded. It was converted to vend cards and there was no clucking mechanism and bellows, but maybe the Witches Cave is not supposed to sound like a Hen House. !PUZZLED!

I see Elephant results have been posted.
I presume Bonus Hitop was again unsold?

well, the Bonus appears to have been knocked down to £850, however a good number of sales on the day have never shown up on the results page.
lot 49 nice Governor @£460 , I would have liked that one, but never committed.
lot 51 awful formica Governor with painted repro back bonnet sold @£600! on commision
lot 52 very nice Eldorado Governor knocked down @ £520
lot 151 Nostalgic Win a Mint @£200
lot 189 11's needing backflash & wood repair @£420
lot 190 OW penny points @£420
lot 191 OW Uselect it @£420
lot 235 Mills QT @ £1K
lot 238 tidy Aristo @ £220

There were a few others, but just spot the gaps in the results numbering.
My only gripe is that these were not announced as failing to meet reserve, and the bidding may or may not have been cooked to up the price. If you sell at auction, Shill bidding is pretty low, just accept what the market will pay, or dont try to sell this way.
