Re: Recent discovery

I have seen another one of these and they attributed it Athens, but I am not sure if they were right.

Re: Auction today

Ridiculously cheap, would have bought most of these at that price, especially the early stuff. Never seen the Argyle fortune teller. A well kept secret auction! Think the seller should be disappointed.

Re: Unusual UK conversion on a Jennings

I think ill informed, they believe they are buying original machines. If they knew the nostalgia machines were made in China don't think they would touch them

Re: Brenner "Ball Past The Arrow"

I have one which has been in storage for fifty years in a hotel.

Re: J & M Triomphe + Schülke Loreley shooters

Thanks for the great info and pictures. Does not look like I will be finding a gun any time soon!
Love the coinslot with double slot, don't think I have seen another for different size coins for the same value.
