Beautifully done, the artwork.

I have the Double Diamond version, and the artwork looks good...

Until the light comes on!

Now the top glass is finished the wording is clear, and it is interesting in its own way. A 5/- token, but only to be used in that pub, so with Red Barrel being a little under 2/6 at the time you got two pints - not too bad a prize really for a 6d play, although of course, the 2 pints didn't cost the pub that much, so it could be considered a good deal for both parties. Interesting that you didn't get the 2 x 6d usually paid by the first barrel if you won a token. :lol:

Finally found time to finish this machine, and it's as good a machine as I expected. I made two new glasses, sprayed the case with a special can spray I like to use that gives a good impression of a powder coat and serviced the mech. everything works at it should including the lights and the solenoid powered token payout. one new lock to fit and it's finished, you just have to love that particular set of reel strips. As good a late bandit as there is in my view.
