Jennings Peacock help

Postby jpmhotpot » Sun Oct 09, 2016 6:39 pm

Hi everyone, I'm currently restoring a Jennings Peacock 1931/33 it has the gold award coin mech. Does anyone have information on getting hold of any coins or repro coins for this type of machine. I've seen some on ebay.com Mills/ Pace etc. but not Jennings. To be honest, any gold coin would do but the mech needs the right size it seems. I've tried different coins to get a scale on what size I need. The closest I've come is the old one penny coin 1d. The thickness is right but it needs to be say 1cm bigger in circumference. !PUZZLED!

Hi jpmhotpot and welcome to us.

There are sites in Americaland but first of all ..... are you sure about it needs to be say 1cm bigger in circumference than an old penny?
That's over 5" around the outside man!
I imagine you mean 1 mm ? Or perhaps centimilligallons?

Well I'm out of my comfort zone on a different issue.
I've never witnessed a Jennings Peacock with Gold Award.

However that doesn't mean a thing.
So I'll now sit back and allow the more informed to tell me I'm wrong and then we've all learnt something :cool:

There was I think a Peacock for sale recently? That had coins in the non handle side lower casting window and not mints. I haven't got a picture I'm afraid but someone will.

Well I think it was a Peacock...... Maybe the escalator model had a token option? Or one of the many revampers did a token option? Or maybe not?

Size wise this must be what you want. It's exactly the size you describe. These came from Mr Slot in the USA for my Mills Extraordinary.
Is your machine using the standard Mills gold award dispenser? If so, I suspect this is a re-vamp form the time when the machine came to the UK and didn't want the mints. Sorry about the poor photo quality.

If the OP can post a pix of his machine that would be great? Cheers

Posted images of the gold award mech/window display. This project is new to me I normally deal with machines from 60`s/70`s. I`ve always wanted to restore a classic American bandit so I bought it.
loads to do . needs new back top door lock / I'm thinking from other peacocks pics my pull arm is not right for this machine. The jp mech is missing where you have two trays of coins behind glass windows. Also it seems this machine had reel stop button at some point no more :tut The bonuses.... behind the back door it has the original jennings instructions also it has the original serial number badge on inside on the wood which matches a stamped number on the top cast. The reel strips which are original are in very good condition. At the moment I'm stripping the layers of paint which this machine has had over the years.
wow once you get the paint off the detail of cast really looks great.
