    Congrats! It's a super game, one of my favourite purely mechanicals up there with World's Series.
    My copy is out being worked on at the moment.

    I saw on pinside map there was one in Canada, guessing that was you.
    We played it all night, fun when all 3 wheels move. Glass is off and doing cleaning on it today.

    1934 Van-Scho Hurdles. For my prewar pinball friends who are not on Facebook, where I originally posted these photos,
    here's a purely mechanical game with some unique features.

    1) The ball lift is integrated into the shooter rod mechanism. Pushing the rod lifts a ball to the shooter lane;
    2) Shooter rod knob is wooden;
    3) A triple chime unit activates when a ball lands in any of three "hurdle" holes. These balls will strike one or two chimes, very melodic;
    4) An internal tilt mechanism utilizes a captive ball to shift a "flag" from the twelve o'clock position to the "tilted" ten o'clock position. This "flag" was advertised as visible from a distance of 20 feet by the merchant.

    The gameplay invites the player to land balls in the six trap holes. Each of the three top hurdle holes creates a cascading hurdling effect, corresponding to the two trapped balls below. Hurdled ball scores are doubled and are deposited in the cast register. The "hurdle" hole ball is returned to the player for additional shooting.

    Since this is the only known example, it's the IPDB game, where additional photos are posted. Hurdles is an extraordinary effort by a short-lived and long-forgotten company, which clamored for attention in the most significant and most innovative year in pinball history: 1934.

    Rockola Big Game - $1200

    #772 1 year ago

    if it works, $1200 for a Rock-ola Big Game is right on the money.
    Extremely collectible because Rock-ola, but also it's the first pinball machine with a "synthesized sound". Seems like an odd mech to claim that since we had electric buzzers 2 years earlier. but ah well. This will easily sell for $1k imo

    Heh looks like someone moved the bottom left rubber to make it even harder to get good scores!
    playfield looks unfaded and backglass is in great shape, someone should definitely grab this.

    Have the Rocket flyer. The game was $150 new. "Playing field is a panel of natural walnut selected for unusually beautiful grain". Would love to find one on the east coast. "Six payouts possible on one coin". "Operate in 'open' or 'Closed' territory". The payout door is on the side and can be locked. Missing legs and I don't know what else. Would want more pictures of the mechanism if I were a buyer.

    Quoted from RyanClaytor:

    Title: 1937 Pamco "Hi-De-Ho"
    Price: $750
    Description: I have a Pacific Amusement Company Pinball Machine. It's a PAMCO Hi De Ho Pinball Machine. It is complete & in good condition. Unrestored but well cared for. I am unsure of the year but I believe it is between 1931 & 1937. I am looking to sell it. I have been told that the legs may not be original but everything else appears to be original.

    I chat with the seller today via Facebook and he seems awfully cool. He agreed to take additional pictures and send them to Jay at IPDB. I asked if I could post his email here and he said that would be fine:

    Well it looks like the pictures aren't up at IPDB.

    Here's an attractive game. Looks like it would be something Cait001 would have in her collection. Says it's from Cincinnati but looks English or German to me? Also l imagine this had lock instead of a latch on it originally.

    I posted more info about this in the previous war threads, including a link to a video.

    If I had room, I would have got it while I was in in Pensacola.

    Yup, totally up my ally. That's an allwin, a British machine. Not from 1920, from the mid 1950s.
    I've owned a handful of allwins before. simple machines, but also simple fun. And purely mechanical!

    Some non-original parts on the inside, and one thing you see in a lot of British machines is the wood worms. But if it goes for under $500 that is a fair price for a 24 Cups.

    After some manic digging through Facebook Marketplace, I've found some interesting pieces --

    A 1937 Chicago Coin "Topper," asking price $250. Wilcott, Connecticut. Nonworking, but cosmetically very nice.
    https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/4216118671799550/

    Gottlieb "Five Star Final," home version, asking $150. Punta Gorda, Florida.
    https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/203131178507617/

    Perhaps most interesting (and most expensive!) is the Baffle Ball basketball arcade game. $2000, Fort Smith, Arkansas. I think Richard Bueschel said in Encyclopedia of Pinball Vol 1 that David Gottlieb named his game after the one pictured here.
