    Purchased a rare item to display in our museum.

    Who has any more info about this playfield?

    It supposed to be a topper for a slotmachine named Cash Ball.

    It a Williams product.

    Any info is welcome.

    Always wanted this for my collection.

    Had a chance to get a NIB at Pinball Expo only I didnt have cash on me and the seller wanted cash only.

    In researching it I found this one pic of a row of machines with the topper in action.

    Thank you for contacting The Pinball Resource.

    Please see my notes below:
    Here's our old ad for the Pin Head Topper
    Special : Williams Pinball Slot Topper/PinHead:
    ** Updated **

    This is a NOS Williams CashBall Pinball Slot Machine Topper/PinHead. The Pinball Resource is selling this wired playfield as a rich source of Williams NOS part, many of which are No Longer Available. This pinhead is from 1998, thus many of the parts are from games like Cirqus Voltaire and Safecracker, our guess was Williams was using parts they had in their inventory to make these!

    You can use this Special PinHead for spare parts or may just want to hang it on your wall due to the cool artwork and its vertical design! Make it a project to hook up the lights for a cool gameroom display?

    Listed below are the major parts/assemblies included with this wired playfield:
    *Note we have indicated whether a part is specific to a particular game if known.

    Had a few of them, they are good for parts or possibly a display if you can get it to light up? Played the slot years ago, was pretty cool.

    A few months ago I purchased one of these from Steve Young, of pinball resource. At the time he told me he had a semi truckload of these (maybe more), he took out the ceramic ball (like used in TZ) and sold them separately as they were pretty valuable at the time ($50 maybe). The toppers themselves he sold, gave away, etc. but kept one.. the one I bought from him because it was the only one he had with the silkscreened artwork.

    I would love to recreate this slot machine in my home gameroom, but have had a hard time finding any other info.. love the picture above, even if it's small, showing it in action..

    You ever get it running? Maybe just the GI. Thats my plan.

    #12 1 year ago

    No have not had time to really look into it, a buddy of mine has one and said he was going to try and do something, i will have to get in touch with him and see if he has.

    Hey there! Got a moment?
