    You may wish to place a wanted ad in the marketplace. May help your hunt.

    25¢ ones ? If so any metal ones will do. They have three holes on each side and two posts each side. That you can move around in the holes for what matches the ones in your game where it sits.

    If your game has ones with a small metal plate screwed to one side, you cna move that over too.

    On any given day, there are usually around 5 to 10 or more pinball coin mechanisms on eBay.

    If shipping to Canada wasn't so expensive on parcels, I'd happily sell a few. They just seem to pile up over time.

    The link I sent you will work ( except if you need to remove the magnet for Canadian quarters )

    See the red arrows - The two studs on each side of the coin mech should be screwed into the two lower holes on each side.

    Slip the lower part on the mech into the bottom part of the bracket then shove the top part in to lock. Done.

    No magnet on Canadian mechs to stop Canadian quarters. American mechs have the magnet to stop them. Most American mechs you can remove the magnet if you want.
