Tearing down my Coquette. I wonder if there were ever plastic sleeves on these based on the circle worn areas around them. Anyone know?

Pretty sure that’s worn like that because that’s as close as the ball touches.

Three different playfields on IPDB do not show any sleeves.
Suppose they all could have been lost with time, but...

Yeah that makes sense. And the pins are too narrow to hold a sleeve.

No sleeves on them. They were just bare metal from the start.

If you need to replace you can buy piano wire from hobby stores.

That's great advice. I plan to tumble them and see what kinda shine I get.

You might be able to actually put a new nail in, then cut off the head with a dremmel tool (so that it leaves a flat cut).

Stick them in a drill and spin them in a cloth with some Mother's Mag. They'll polish up well in a few seconds.

I bought them from Steve at PBR last year. But as dr_nibble states easy to clean with a drill and polish.
