    I have 2 TAFs with the same coin doors - but on one of them most coin mech parts are missing.
    Googling around didn't help, I couldn't find out what kind of door this is.

    Does any one know the make and model - and if there are parts for it available ?

    Honestly, that almost looks like a stnadard blank door, with some custom work done to it.

    I, too, would be curious if this was a factory (either coin door manufacturer, or WMS) option like that.

    I have a complete single coin door (I think Italian) that I would sell if interested in the whole thing? It’s in really nice shape

    Indeed, that is a blank door ("lower" door for collections,m on some arcade/redemption machines that have a separate door above it with the mechs) that someone chopped up to add whatever mech they decided to use. The door itself appears to be a CoinCo but the mech.. who knows

    Yeah, that's a blank door that was customized. I don't recognize the parts that remain, so who knows.

    For early WPC games, they used Coin Controls doors.

    Typically, I've seen the 3-slot variant like this, but with the appropriate coinage labels:

    The US door was the same, but just had 2 coin slots, rather than 3:

    I've seen this style of coin door on a couple WPC games, though I'm not entirely certain that it's era appropriate. It's also a Coin Controls door, but it seems like it might actually be for Data East games that were possibly converted for use for WPC games by swapping the coin door's harness.

    Ok, but I have 2 doors that are exactly the same - but one game is from Norway and the other from Germany - bought from 2 separate places at different times.
    What are the odds of the custom doors being the same ?

    Pinball machines can bounce around a bit as they are bought and sold. It's possible that they could have been owned by the same operator at some point.

    I don't think it came from the factory like this, but distributors and operators changed mechanical coinacceptors to electronic ones for reliabilty.
    This door is for the Mars 5 inch ME126 family and this acceptor was at the time widely used in gambling machines across Europe. In pinball it is one of the lesser common used electronic acceptor but i have come across a few over the years as well.
