So I now remember the two machines in the Davenport collection ( Cutting a Woman in Half and Indian Fakir) came from John Gresham's collection, sold to Roy by Pat Gresham as I was there when he came to look at those and a few other non coin-op pieces.

I have just seen another Samson 'cutting woman in half illusion' on my travels at Marvins Marvelous Mechanical Museum in Michigan
so they did make more, and experimented with the Peppers Ghost illusion quite a lot.
Similarly Darren's 'Haunted House' model, and Rye's 'Smokey Joe' are other examples.
