Let's see pictures of your EM Pinball backglasses with the year it was made showing in the score!

I'll start with my Paul Bunyan backglass picture, it shows "1968", the year it was made.

I have so many I like....I'll start with this rare one, a 1950 Genco Flying Saucers, since sci-fi themes are my favorite....Flying Saucers I 6 C.jpg

#3 5 years ago

....and for the race car fans....how about a 1949 Bally Hot-Rods...another seldom seen game and unusual....it's a flipperless game even though flippers had been around for two years and it had wooden balls (which I still don't have).....

BTW....I can't really show the score with woodrails....I just figured you can use your imagination.....and the few Williams games that have scoring reels from this era have 3 zeroes at the end of the score basically making it impossible to show the year....

#5 5 years ago

My favorite.. An add a ball with great artwork on backglass and playfield!

Flying Saucers looks fantastic! I'm a sci fi fan too and have collected different movies from the 1950s, it's great to know the year your games were made.

Beautiful and great idea putting the year in the first 4 score reels!

#13 5 years ago

King Rock...Id some touch up and its ok. Id replace it if I found on better. 6 out of 10

#14 5 years ago

Sky Jump- this one was about a 4 out of 10. I did replace it with one from Shay. Look amazing now that the restore is complete.

If I put 1963 on the score reels it would be like cheating.

I bet nobody knows this one:

Never seen a 4 player Buccaneer before...IPDB doesnt even have it listed. Is it a prototype?

#22 5 years ago

Some of these are still here, some of these are gone.....but not forgotten.

Well...Im not a huge fan of the multiplayers. But it looks nice. This is one game I'd like to own, but I think I'd prefer the classic wedge head single player. This would neat to have in a collection because its so unique.

#25 5 years ago

Two different apron styles on the Buc?

All right!!

That brazilian Buccanner is actually a clone of 2 different Gottlieb's machines, merged into 1.

If you look carefully, the overall art is just like the original Buccaneer, but the playfield layout is exactly the same as Jungle Queen.

This rare EM was made by a brazilian manufacturer called J.Esteban.

Quoted from Arcade:

Yep... actually the brown one is the original apron art.... Two pix of the same machine at different moments of time.... I don't own this machine yet, but I'm almost there!!!!

Keeping in the spirit of originality, these are not repros:
1948 Gottlieb Barnacle Bill
1957 Genco Show Boat
1958 Williams Gusher
1950 Gottlieb Madison Square Gardens
1950 Gottlieb Knock Out

Why do people even bother with Ems, there not exactly deep are they? Theres literally no rules, no toys, every game is the same, you would get bored with it within a week! The art work is cheesy! Although its still better than some of Doug watsons art work on later bally williams machines! Theres one sound! Ching Ching!

They have class and style. Something I find missing in a lot of newer games and some of the posters here abouts.

The year is 1943?

Your backglasses are beautiful! I'm enjoying looking at them again and again, especially the woodrail ones.

My first pinball machine was a 1953 Williams Grand Champion for only $30 but it kept breaking and my father made me leave it behind when we moved across country.... would love to own a nice woodrail game again. Maybe someday maybe...I'm keeping my eyes open.

I was looking at this game on ipdb.org (it's obviously yours from comparing the back glasses) and noticed the light bulbs in the backbox, didn't realize they used regular light bulbs in the backbox back then.

Correct. The glass was made in 1943... for a pin made in 1941.

I had a 1966 Gottlieb CENTRAL PARK original backglass silkscreened on plexiglass that I bought a long time ago from a seller located in France.
