Are these slot related or not?

Someone has asked me if I know what these plastic beads are...I've no idea! anyone seen them before? some of the questions on the papers are quite high brow (what is the atomic weight of radium?). Quite possibly not slot related at all,but who knows....please
If nothing else they are very odd.

Allwin ID please

Post merged - Site Admin.

Can someone identify this rather nice allwin? The ball gallery seems unusual but surely the ball delivery tube is unique(?) if it's original. It seems to have an automatic coin return. Is it old or some sort of repro?

Re: J.C. Vickery THE ROCKS stamp dispenser identified

As these were almost always found in hotels I had a search, of course, the venue has more than likely closed down years ago but there is just one candidate that is old enough to have been the original home of this dispenser. The Rocks Hotel, Dunbar...but it a bit of a long shot :lol:

Re: Wiegandt Automaten shooting gallery identified

Turns out there is a name plate on the machine, "Lowen Automation" which is one of the names of NSM (Bingen). The machine is so like the 1958 one shown above I can only assume NSM bought out the other company and took over their machines. Good to see how the info slowly comes together. !THUMBS!
