Fascinating bundle of treasures there.
What would a complete one look like?

Thank you.
Best picture of one I've seen.
I'm very fond of cranking handles.

I’ve almost finished my 2 weeks quarantine after overseas travel my plan was to paint some cabinets
1964 midway raceway
1954 Seeburg Coon hunt
1940 holly crane

Currently raceway is painted and mostly reassembled
Coon hunt is 90% painted and partially re assembled
Holly crane is stripped and sanded hopefully ready for some shellac tomororow

To the uninitiated, could someone kindly tell me what a Goldings Flasher is? I’ve obviously missed an auction or twenty in the last couple of years. 🤔

A 'Flasher' is a generic term for a type of gaming machine that displays the symbols using flashing lights rather than rotating drums, discs &c..
They started off as a way to circumvent gaming laws (as usual), but became popular in their own right during the 1950s and '60s.
'Golding' is the name of a distributor of such machines.

Here some better pictures. If there is no mint in the vendor, the machine also close the coin insert. :tut

I`ve casted the crank with homemade mixture of sand with soda water glass, hardened with carbonic acid. It allows gas to flew out, so you get very fine finsh for high temperatur casting. Blank casting was softly grinded, and then polished with a very large industrial machine.
