This looks like it might be an ex Australian operated machine since it still operates with the poker reel symbols, and only guaranteed amounts for a jackpot allowed in Aust back then. The award card looks correct for this machine to me, or is it just the payout amounts aren't correct?
The award card that I have is an Aristocrat issued card from 1967 as stated in very tiny script on the bottom of the card. The payouts on both cards are the same.
I assumed that the card as pictured would be the right one?
I found Australian and UK sixpence coins in the machine. Really don't know if the machine is all Australian. 🤔

This is a picture from the coin mechanism when the machine is at rest
I don't think that is correct. I think the long arm should be in the up position at rest (taking the small lever with it). The pin above is definitely a spring retainer, perhaps a "belt and braces" device to make sure the lever returned to the up position, although there seems to be no suitable retainer for the spring on the lever. :!?!: My clubmaster is at the back of the room but I'll try and pull it forward to see if mine is like Special's.

Nice Clubman Dutchboy...
I don't think I will let my Clubmaster go.
I even think of buying a sister Clubman if one pops up.
Where are you located?

The reason for the side view was it looked like your machine was half cocked. I can see that is not the case, but does look like the operating arm has not returned all the way up to push the coin acceptor arm up. Yes, a spring should be there which holds the acceptor arm up when the machine is operated...

A full picture from the front would help to see if it is hitting the arm stop. Yours looks like a late mechanism. Does the serial number match the side plate?

Gameswat, I think your point on poker reels has come up before. I believe all Clubmasters imported were with them to the U.K., probably from new and somewhere revamped later to fruits. Poker reels also were released on some Sheerline style models in the U.K...

If it has come from Australia second hand then that 1967 dated card would have been used to update all operating machines in Aust., as we went decimal in 1966. I imagine the coins printed around the edge of the card are the new 5 cents pieces that replaced the old 6d? If so, they likely used a denominator button glued over the 6d coin entry casting, or a decal of some kind to show the new 5 cent operation, as they rarely ever replaced castings over here. I certainly wouldn't remove it as the card it came with is one of the nicest and most colorful I've ever seen on an Aussie slot. That yellow version is bland in comparison.

I'll take some pictures from frontside tomorrow. I don't believe the numbers match. 🤔

Hi john I’m located in Hoofddorp near Schiphol. I think there should be a spring at the pin and there is also a bug blanking of a hole in the payout disc of reel no one? Both marked in picture.
