I picked up a rough 1959 Around the World pin today. This will be my fourth restoration and hopefully my best. I learn something every time. The plan is the fix the broken wood on the cabinet, make stencils and do a full repaint. I'll also repaint the entire playfield and clearcoat after fixing the inserts. The inserts aren't cupped as much as they are recessed. Since the game doesn't work I'll take apart the mechanicals, clean and polish when possible. I'm sure I'll run into a few problems so please comment with suggestions. Tomorrow it is going to a local exterminator for fumigation. I'll be able to pick it up in a week and then the fun will begin. This is where I am today.
