Quoted from jasonspoint28:
The holes in your coin door and shooter rod trim plate look strangely similar to mine. You don’t suppose that they were owned by the same hillbilly at one time?
Judging by the pieces of coin door lock that I found inside, it looks like someone pried the coin door open at one point. Someone probably had a padlock on it like in your picture. It does look suspiciously similar. I thought the picture in your post above was my picture until I looked closer. I see that you are in WI. It's very possible they came from the same place.
I happened upon a facebook marketplace ad that had been posted 3 minutes prior to me seeing it. I was the first one to respond. They had been paid to clean out a property and got to keep anything of value from the haul. They were certainly young enough (maybe early to mid thirties) to know how to use the internet to appropriately price the machine. When I went to look at it, it was locked up tight and was missing a few play field inserts. When I got it home and opened it up, I found the missing inserts. Had I known the machine was complete and working, I might have just given them the $100 that they were asking. She even helped me load it into my van as I couldn't pin down a friend to make the drive with me.
I suspect I will hold onto it for a little while at least. I am really enjoying working on these but I only have enough room for one working machine and one project at the same time. Personally, I think I enjoy working on them as much as playing them (maybe more).
