There's only one appropriate response Stuart - Yee Haw!

.....and the pennies are soooooo shiny.

Thanks for this, so many great videos here.

Do yourself a favour and check out this 25-page long thread on pinside where people are sharing photos of their collections of EM Arcade machines, bowlers, jukes, slots, fortune tellers, and other cool items.
Probably lots of stuff of interest to anyone on this board. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic ... -gameroom/

Actually, just got to the 832 pictures and use the right arrow key to scroll through: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic ... ?gallery#g

Does anyone have a flier, or other pre-decimal picture, of the Bell Fruit Penny Target?
I have both versions (blue and red), and am trying to undo the decimal conversion.
I've solved the '12 payout' problem, it was a simple soldering job, but I don't know what the 'pays 12' part of the payout glass looks like.
I also think that an additional cherry was added to the first reel, to balance the payout.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Here's a flyer from http://stubbens.se

This one from a Pinterest page of '70s fruit machines also appears to have been converted to new penny unfortunately.

I love the flier!
The 'decimalised' machine has exactly the same artwork 'mod' as my two: a different-coloured '10' in a circle.
Presumably a kit was supplied by the factory, with instructions for the agents to fit.
I wonder where the discarded parts went? The tubes and slides, and the coin acceptors?
