Allwin information needed

Post by yankie »

Hello everyone.
I can not find any information on this allwin game.
I’m sure someone here will know the maker and name of this game.
Cheers,
Yankie

Thanks alan57.

After looking at your picture, I can see that the money door is the other way around and the coin entry has been changed...

Your coin entry may be original for the penny machine. The 'sample pic' is of the ha'penny version.

Here is another British Manufacturing Co machine the same as yours yankee on the British halfpenny, made in the 1930s in London. BMco was headed up by Charles Featherstone and the firm made a huge variety of allwins throughout the 30s but WW2 put an end to production.

Thank you Brigham.
I'll keep the game as it was in the 1930s.

Thank you Arrgee.
That picture of your game is very nice.
Another thing I notice is the black paint....?

Not mine yankee (although I would like to own it), this sold at auction around 8 to 9 years ago

Yes, I have seen this black/dark edging on allwins before, although I am not sure if this would have been original.

I'm fairly certain that the black edging paint is original. I've owned several BM Co. allwins with it, most being the smaller models in what I called the "wedding cake" style case that was definitely Art Deco.

Thanks John
That’s good to know about the black edge to keep it original as possible
