Stolen Machines

Post by djjfive »

Hi,

I’ve had a number of machines stolen last night (28th-29th October 2021) that I had in storage. If you are offered any of the pictured machines below, please get in contact with me. Many thanks.

Hopefully, whoever has them makes a mistake which leads to a later return of them, back to you.

Are they marked anywhere with a postcode or other defining mark?

Unfortunately, they are not marked with a postcode; however, some do have their unique age marks, a fair few of them I’ve never seen for sale before or since.
It’s a long shot, but I thought it would be worth letting the community who are interested in these machines know if, by chance, they come across them.

It doesn't happen often thankfully.
You may get a quicker reaction if there were a crime number to report as the system is supposed to work nationally.
Could it have been kids?
Was anything else taken or only these?
!OMFG!

Hi,

Thank you, there is a crime number it is: 21000629713.
A few other things were taken; however, nothing I’d expect to turn up and be identifiable.
I can’t imagine these machines would stay hidden from collectors for too long as most of us are all on here.

djjfive - hope that you can recover these, keep looking on eBay and other such sites, also auction houses: good luck.

Ah, thank you.
I’ve always got alerts on for vintage penny machines👍
I’m struggling to understand where they would expect to sell these without leaving a trail back to themselves.
It seems unlikely anyone with an actual interest in these machines would also happen to be a burglar, so it appears to be a poorly planned robbery, rather strange items for thieves to target, in my opinion🤷🏻‍♂️

Sort of makes you wish you lived in Hong Kong. Don't they lash people for this? Or Iran, with the removal of offending hands of the thief.

I'll keep an eye out for any signs of them.
At least they haven't knocked on your door and sold them back to you one at a time ( like they did to one of our well known esteemed operators)

I said this to my partner last night, the only person I know around here who would buy them is me :HaHa:

I’m sure most of us have alerts on all the web auction sites as well as eBay and marketplace, so hopefully they turn up. They may just try to sell them to some antique shop ?

Most likely I think.
