I thought I would throw this out to all Early Bally collectors.
Does anyone have a hi resolution scan of the central "Magic 3D Eye" insert that goes in the center of the backglass?
I am interested in doing a reproduction for my backglass for professional printing on laminate.
I am aware their were two versions of the glass, and only need the central circle image, no need or concern for removal as I would never ask another to potentially damage their glass. I can do the artwork corrections myself.
Alternatively I might even get creative...

There is a scan on IPDB, though I'm not sure if the dpi is high enough for printing.

There's a guy in Beaverton with one...
I can ask him tomorrow

Quoted from ForceFlow:

The dpi is pretty low on that one, hence my asking if anybody had a scan. In a pinch, I could clean it up, as this NOT going in a machine, it is one of backglasses on my wall. No reproductions were ever made to my knowledge and NOS are non-existent but it has been awhile. I might even be able to make a better one than original with new tech and materials to give a holographic effect, if somebody needed one for there own machine, that was not the screened version. I am not "selling" these to avoid certain supplier insanity, its is a project.

I located a 3200 dpi scan.
Made necessary corrections
I reproduced the image on plastic film, and job is complete.
However, the light transmission quality IMHO is not suitable for actually using it in a machine, as it allows too much light.
Additional plastic film would be required to reduce translucency.
Looks good as a backglass wall hanger though, completely undetectable.

Did this ever get figured out? I'm thinking it would be cool to inset this insert and make a light shield like the early production.
My insert is fine, but I don't want to mess with it, incase it breaks upon removal.
