A Shefras machine, I would say, but I'm not sure which one.

The Shefras machines have really well engineered mechanisms, although it's the only allwin mech (that I have seen) that utilises a nylon/plastic component (end of the coin release wire).

Fire away! The only resources you're likely to find are the knowledgeable folk here. The top glasses on these are screen printed on glass. With patience and a steady hand, these can be very effectively replicated by back-painting on glass using cut out stencils and car paint spray cans.

There are several designs to choose from...

Proper Coin for Allwin Double Your Money

Post by double »

What is the proper coin for this machine? I mistakenly tried the new penny.

The original coin is the big old British 31mm diameter bronze pre-decimal penny.

My machine is like the middle picture. And in the short time I’ve been with y’all, I’ve learned my machine is 98 percent complete. My bride found this game hanging on a wall in an antique shop in Murphy, North Carolina and asked me if I was interested. Purchase price $125 USD.

Here goes! Looking for….
a picture of the key for the case
a picture of the hinges for the money box
a picture of the lock and key for the money box
a picture of the inside of the money box
years this machine was issued
what type of wood is the case, I’m guessing white oak

Thank you
