Canterbury Auction Galleries sale 5-6 Feb

Postby pennymachines » Mon Jan 07, 2019 1:04 pm

Yesterday I put a forthcoming sale at Canterbury Auction Galleries in the Calendar. It's February 5-6th and I'm informed it will contain a set of 3 Bryans magic machines, a set of Bryans three ball allwins and a Smuggler working model, amongst other slot machines (not sure which of the two days).

Well, the auctioneers have certainly done their homework with some of (or rather most of) the dates attributed to the slots (NOT). 1970s Bryans Magic machines, which were actually made in '85; 1960s Merchantman crane, actually dating from the '30s; Bryans 3 Ball allwins all dated 1950s, which weren't actually produced until the '60s onward; 1940s Payramid, again produced from the '60s onward. And isn't that 1950s Passion tester one of Roger Gillman's?
.......and if anyone is considering bidding online, the commission is a whopping 30% :shock:

Judging by the auction house estimates, which generally in my experience reflect the reserves, there will be no bargains there on the day! 30% commission. :shock:

30% commission.
Although in theory the magic machines and working model are slightly under.....

Are these the famous trio of magic machines with serial numbers in line, or has there been a few of these... The fact that these were never made to operate, or so I assume, if they went straight into collector world surely removes something, like history..... I wouldn’t pay a premium for these SkEpTiCaL . The single machine looks much nicer. !!THUMBSX2!!

Thanks PM.....never saw machines in person, but those 3 ball machines either just left the factory or have new cabinets on them, maybe reflected in resulting price !PUZZLED!

All way beyond my means :#:
