Does anyone know what that little glass window is on the top left of the front of the machine?
Normaly is a small numbered disc (2 ,4,8,12,16,20), driven by some gears from payout unit, behind the window.
It shows the value of last profit.
In 99% the parts a missing. I knew only 2 machines that still have this item.
Think I have a version of this in a rather plain case but with a complete mech. Skills, vender, future play.

That is a late Jentzsch & Meerz Giganta! Rare!
Here some information:

The mechanism is similar to J&M Omega type machine but with sidepull. Notice the little reel on left machine.

Oh! Jentzsch & Meerz, I was thinking that it was Schwarz as it's got a badge featuring an acorn and leaves, like on the Schwarz top casting.

Hi Dave!
I have organized me a conversion Giganta, nice case but the machine is completely destroyed.

I'm sure that I have the missing parts somewhere in stock :burp: but I have no idea how they look....
Specially the assembly for the coin insert mechanism to the driver disc on the main frame is wanted.

Finally dug out the J&M Giganta. Got to say that it's well engineered and different from the usual mechanisms.
