#2 4 years ago

are these made out of gold?

why are they not on the original game?

#3 4 years ago

From what I understand they where sent out after the games left the factory. It took me some time to find the one with my game number on it.

so how did you end up with 4 of them not your game #?

Pictured in this listing is a numbered Special Collectors Edition Plate made of cast aluminum. Tom Kopera told us that they had planned to have a production run of 925 so that was the quantity of plates that they had ordered to be made. The plates were supposed to be affixed to every game (first game made to have plate number 001, 50th game made to have number 050, etc.) but the plates were late in the making and 70% of the games were shipped out to distributors before anybody realized the plates had not caught up with the games. Williams ended up giving the plates to distributors to match up to the games each had received, but in the end some distributors received the plates and some did not. The rush to switch over to Pinball 2000 may have been a factor in this.

This is from IPDB.

This is the story I also heard. Thanks.

Quoted from Whysnow:

so how did you end up with 4 of them not your game #?

I have purchased, sold and traded them over the years to find the ones I needed. At the time I had a couple of CC's and was trying to find the right #'s for them. Down to the one now.

#9 4 years ago

How do you know your game number? Is it the last three numbers of your serial number?

#10 4 years ago

I'm looking for #529

I am guessing anyone with a decent 3d printer could help all you guys out.

by selling it and buying them a plaque?

#14 4 years ago
Quoted from TaylorVA:

by reprinting the ones people need. It appears to be a pretty simple piece and while not the original material, a decent reproduction could be made with each number.

It's a collectable. I think the idea is to have the original.

#16 4 years ago
Quoted from TaylorVA:

oh. I thought this was like everything else on our games where we make them nicer or use a good reproduction when the original can not be found?

To each their own, but if you own a CC and your plaque does not exist then a 3D printer is a nice viable option.

If these are selling for $400 then someone should just restamp a blank plate and make all the missing numbers. (In all reality how would one tell the difference between an original plaque and a good reproduction? maybe it has alreayd been done?)

#17 4 years ago

I heard that most of these were tossed in the garbage but retrieved by someone in Europe. I do not know how true that is. Either way they are rare.

There were actually metal repros done a few years ago. Cast just like the originals. They looked identical IIRC.

#19 4 years ago

I'm looking for plaque number 806.

For the last five years I've never seen anyone with that one for sale. Guess I'll have to keep looking!

#20 4 years ago

#21 4 years ago

Monthly bump.

#30 3 years ago

i think 3d printing your number is the way to go. who the hell would know the difference? unless you actually went and rubbed the plaque. Even then it would be hard to tell when mounted on the game. Looks original, functional. That's what you need. All the added aftermarket shit people pile in games already, with aftermarket this, LED's and other shit. Having a 3d plaque is the least of your problems.

#31 3 years ago

If someone is willing to 3D print, I would buy 852 at a reasonable price! Please PM me

#33 3 years ago

Lol. Just saw pic and was thinking why the hell does he want 852.

#34 3 years ago

My cc didn't last long in my collection but it had the matching original plaque. Plaque did add value when I sold for what it's worth.

#35 3 years ago

I have 719. need 829.

#36 3 years ago

If anyone has 658 please let me know...

#37 3 years ago

I need 172. The real deal or a 3D print.

#38 3 years ago

Looking for 906

I don't know you'd want to directly 3d print with filament (though shapeways does offer direct stainless steel printing), which I've gotten and does look decent, especially if you get polished:
http://www.shapeways.com/materials/steel

They also do brass:

If someone wants to give me accurate hole spacing (vertical and horizontal), and maybe outside L X W dimensions so I can get the aspect correct, I'd be willing to make an STL file

I had started on the lettering as reckon a metal print would be ideal and then Shapeways offers a customization as well so where the box is for a stamped number people can add their particular serial number at Shapeways and at a guess reckon a steel make in the 24karat gold plated would be around the $60.

#41 3 years ago

That would be great! Maybe someone can give the dimensions to toyotaboy, so we can make this happen? (I don't have a plaque, sorry)

#42 3 years ago

So is there anyway to tell the difference between a original and the reproduction that Robert was speaking of? Also my guess there would be a $ Difference of worth. But I see these go for trade, up to $300. It would be nice to know if I found a original it not. I have not found my number yet. 906

I have #774 if anyone needs it and orginal goodie bag with two sets of slingshot plastics sealed inside!

#44 3 years ago

I have CC #163...missing numbered plaque.

#45 3 years ago

Might as well add these too.
I have 405, but need 574

Thanks!!

#46 3 years ago

Can we see pictures of everybody's plaque and if there are any markings on the back of them. Trying to see if we can spot a difference in original plaques vs. a reproduction one.
Magicchiz

#47 3 years ago

Does anyone on here know that they have a reproduction one?
Magicchiz

#48 3 years ago

bump to see if these are all originals or not?
Magicchiz

#49 3 years ago

Does anyone have more info about those that were remade ? I've never heard about them

I made one for myself a few years ago, see http://flippersbe.blogspot.be/2012/08/cactus-canyon-collectors-plate.html
but it was in plastic, not metal..

#50 3 years ago

If I am going to spend $375 on a collector plaque. I sure hope to he'll that it is a original.
