I thought you guys might be interested in seeing my most recent acquisition. It's a 1932 Mills "Official", and while any of the machines of this vintage are fairly rare, this one is the tabletop version (http://ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1694). The fellow I got it from had owned it for about 40 years, and it's really in exceptional condition - especially given that it's 85 years old! There are a few scratches on the outside of the cabinet, but virtually no wear on the playfield.

Very cool! I love it when people ask me why it's called pinball and I show them a pic of an antique machine like this.

Pins and balls. Those old games more resemble pachinko than any modern pinball game.
