Just for comparison, here is another one. I saved the pictures from an Auction catalogue, (possibly Morphys?)

How could anyone replace the game with a pin table playfield? I know which one I prefer.

Re: Coventry or Collectors auction

I'm an old fart, in my latter 60s, diabetic, mad as a coot, my body has bits that either drop off or joints that sound like a bag of old spanners being thrown around a drum factory by a baby elephant.
