This ain't no Bryan's...

I'd have thought an Antiques Dealer might be (or should be) a bit more clued up...

Jentzsch & Meerz?

Seems a tad overvalued, the days of Ebay being a bargain site feel like a distant memory. !PUZZLED!

Yes, I should think so.

I'd think "Bryan's" was mentioned not necessarily because the vendor think it is but likely because hundreds of collectors will have an ongoing search running for key words.
Bryan's is more easily recognisable than Jentzsch & Meerz

BP :cool:

That is a very good point I'd overlooked - I have words including allwin, penny and machine so it would still have appeared but not everyone will.

Seeing the photo reminded me that it was this model (or an equivalent Saxony Fivewin) that was the reason I first became interested in these machines long ago - even now I vividly remember the yellow colour and those clear instructions printed on it.

This has been on fleebay for a while, maybe it's re-listed.

There are quite a number of machines not moving at the moment perhaps because the sellers are asking silly prices or collectors are holding off until Coventry - or both.

Your former statement is more than likely....Silly Prices!
Most of the Allwins on eBay have been there for weeks if not months... Prices are way too high! A few years ago when an Allwin got listed on eBay it was gone within a day.
Just like Slots, prices go up and down over the years.
