    Hi,

    Does anyone have a good scan of the painted serial numbers from the top of a Gottlieb light box? Specifically the 0,3,4 and 9. It would be great to have 0-9 though.

    Mine are pretty shot.

    Thanks

    If you are not desperate for the aged look Pinball Pimp has cut me serial number stencils that Ive used when buying the regular set

    And if you really want to get fancy rubberstamps.com you can get a 1 in by 3 inch stamp for $16. with the rubber stamp you can play lots of aging tricks etc

    Ken,

    My admittedly 'anal' observation.

    Stamp is $27 plus shipping and you can use it once plus it is not the the same font from as the original Gottlieb cabinet numbers? A decal is no more than a dollar. for the first game and zero for the next 4 or 5.

    I made the PDF's exactly (per my eyes) from scans from 4 Gottlieb games (Slick Chick, Kings & Queens, Astro and C37). Possibly if you want the to use a stamp use my numbers and get it exact. Boilerman also said that from his experience the numbers were not always aligned.

    Great ideas for reproducing the numbers guys I just like the way Dave (Boilerman) advised me to make as the cost is pennies and no software needed.

    I seeing that Wayne and Ken wanted non aged letters made a second pdf this morning and will add to my thread as well.
    Here are the revised exact letters.

    i don't think i ever saw a game with a perfect # stamp. as far as my aging memory can recall all had a splotchy numbers and some were even uneven. but nothing wrong with perfection

    there is a $16 stamp, yes use once. Pimp charges me $20 for his stencil.

    So you print on waterslide decal. just doesnt seem right

    LOL,

    Ken, We repaint Cabinets but demur on adding a perfect lettered cabinet decal in place of a stamp?

    there is plenty of =mt space on his stencils. it only takes a minute or two to add it. he should include the serial number in the price of the set if wanted

    Thanks for the PDF, Steve. That eliminates one step from my technique.

    Leckmeck,
    I believe it was the attached topic you made that I started thinking how I could make the serial # with what tools I had at my disposal. Making the stamp you did was clever.
