|Comment||Larry, Thanks again for the additional information. Doing the research on these kinds of machines and the history of pinball itself has been lots of fun. Even though the machine is in pretty good working order, I am refurbishing it for my own enjoyment and to make it look more like it did back in the day. Nice to know the value, but the machine will NEVER leave my family. It will be passed down to my sons. You provide a great service. It is really nice to know there are people like you out there who can help us novices. It is much appreciated. Greg|

I can answer virtually any question relating to coin operated machines. I have been a BUYER and COLLECTOR for over 25 years and have authored a number of PRICE GUIDES on the subject. My favorite coin operated items are penny arcade machines and pinball games, although I have a vast knowledge in all areas. I also have a huge quantity of coin operated paper advertising which can help date and identify most items.I can answer questions on vending machines, arcade machines, fortune tellers, slot machines, digger/crane machines, gumball machines, peanut machine, gum machine, strength testers, lung testers, pinball machines, gambling machines, bowling machines, etc. I have expertise in the machines from Mills Novelty, Caille, Watling, Keeney, Genco, Chicago Coin, Gottlieb, Bally, Williams, etc.
I have written a number of Price Guides for penny arcade machines AND for pinball games and am considered one of the experts in the hobby on pricing.
I come from the school of experience. Collecting Coin operated items is my life and hopefully you have some questions to test my abilities!
