As in USA, State legislation relating to ownership of coin-operated machines varies so lets be mindful that we don't get ourselves in any strife.
Hence I have a permit to own my 21 machines as I reside in Victoria yet the pertinent conditions attached state that the machines Must Not be used for gambling purposes (Durr), Must Not be playable with Australian coinage (or notes - Durr again) and Cannot Be Displayed - even in a locked glass cabinet as a conversation piece in say, a theme pub, cafe or whatever! Yet in a pub in the centre of Canberra, ACT there's a nice little 50s Shelley Black Cherry re-vamp sitting there right next to the gents bogs and a mate in NSW has (had) about fourteen Aussie re-vamp half & hightops mostly on shilling & sixpence.
Mind you, there is Sharp's' wall machine tourist arcade in Echuca where you buy old pennies and play the machines! Is that not gambling?
Other than one friend who has a remarkable collection of true antiquities and another who has a garage stacked full of old bandits, I think there's pretty much only myself who collects the old beauties.
So come on Aussies - Melburnites in particular - show us what you're hiding - even if by PM.
