So I got a Hurricane from ericpinballfan a few weeks ago, and the game was obviously routed in Southern California based on the CA Robinson sticker on the apron. But there are two more things that got me wondering about the machines history. The first is a small round sticker that looks like a revenue stamp that is next to the CA Robinson sticker. Does anyone know what that is? The second is a small brass tag that is next to the start button. It looks like an operators inventory tag. Does anyone know what operator used these?

The brass tag always had me wondering to.
It would nice to dig some history up on it.

Fun amusement center of Los Angeles

That's how they marked their games on route

Given what the CA Robinson tag says, Do you think it is a re-import?

CA Robinson would modify the plugs on the Bally/Williams games

It should be a domestic game

I miss CA Robinson. The guy that was my boss many years ago was a pinballer and took me there for my first time (While working). He got parts and I played The Sopranos in the show room. Fell in love with it. One became my first NIB pin. Sorry for derail. Have Great Weekend
