    Picked up a very Nice Hit the Deck Sample game. Very clean. Not sure how i feel about the yellow legs and side metal. Nicely done powder coated. But I’m kinda a purist.

    Ugh! I wish whoever had done that had left the game factory. That looks like crap! It's only original once.

    Strip powder coating and get a set of new legs from PBR.....

    First you got a 01001 S Buccaneer...and now a 1002 S Hit the Deck......hmmmm

    Are there any differences between the sample HtD and a normal machine?

    This machine does not have the coin mech.

    What is your number listed as? You made me curious and with 375 produced my number is 03452. Am I #34 or 345....can't be the last 3 one would think, unless they did some funky numbering.

    ...and yes, I'm looking at mine right behind my screen with nice shiny chrome legs. You do need to change them back....IMO, of course.

    Mine is 01002 S. The yellow legs and sides bug the hell out of me because they shouldn’t be. But I get drawn in everytime I see it. Ha. But I’m a purist at heart.

    Sample games to me are just so iconic. If the legs & rails are original from that sample game I think it would be unfortunate to change them-but of course your call steam vette. They certainly are different but as an owner of HtD I rather like the sample colour.

    If it came from the factory yellow then yes I would absolutely keep them yellow. But in this case I don't think they were yellow.

    It looks like there are 2 groupings of serial numbers. Maybe the first grouping is sample games and the second is production? It seems typical for that era of machines.

    I think the only colored legs Gottlieb did were red around 1956.

    That doesn't really mean anything. A factory coin mech easily could have disappeared over the past 40 years.

    Man that yellow. I mean yellow trim is almost always atrocious - I can think of a Wheel of Fortune and JP I've seen for sale recently - but on an EM it's just abominable.

    That’s true, I wonder if any late 70’s Wedghead with two quarter slots would work? Would like to put one on for looks if nothing else.

    Hmmmm Didn't look that way when I owed it.

    Pulling the coin mechs (AND all the wiring) was typically done by operators when they sold their machines so that they wouldn't show up on a competitors route. I never saw the need to try and find all the mechs and rewire it, just so I could put it on free play.

    Glad it found a new home.

    mystery solved
    I do like the yellow legs,
    but the yellow lockdown bar and side rails took it a step too far.
