Two of the other last min 'bargains' I also bought from the queue have a back door and bonnet missing I couldn't see from my vantage point, and were just one of those things. The parts weren't there and that's that.
The point I'm making is that the above machine had been prepared for sale, a good deal of effort taken to do up the case, paint over the payout tray, touch up paint loss on the top glass, fit new cheap locks and keys, cut various bits of aluminium tube of varying diameter and length and fit them inside each other, then fasten them to the slides in a vain attempt to make it work, and hand cut out slots in the wrong flat lock cams. The vendor went to such effort to create this and obviously thought it was a good job.
The 'Cop-A-Lot' in question. I don't have any problem taking a punt on buying machines unseen, (in this case from the queue), and I am quite capable of making it right. I also don't have any criticism at all in the auction process, its all part of the fun.
