    I have this old coin acceptor that I can't figure out. I'm new to this, so hopefully it is something easy to figure out. Every coin I put in goes straight through and falls out the return side. It came out of a nickel slot machine (which didn't work at all when I bought it), so as far as I know it is for nickels, but it may have been changed to quarters at some point because there were a couple quarters (as well as nickels) inside the machine. Either way, I've tried every coin I could and nothing works. Is anyone familiar with these who can look at the pictures and tell me if something is broken/missing/etc?

    Of course after 2 days of messing around, I figured it out right after posting this... It is an American Quarter mechanism. I had only tried with Canadian Quarters, since I am in Canada and that's what the 2 quarters I found in the machine were.

    Makes sense; the wrong type of money won’t work!

    On the main gate assembly (# 404425-1), slide that little stick magnet all the way over to the right. It should now accept Canadian quarters and American quarters.
