I just picked up a lock for my Seawitch yesterday. I just kind of eyeballed the length. I guess it won't be fitting either. Lol. Do you think since the area is recessed that you can use a spacer of sorts to find the correct length? That is probably what I will try

I think you posted in the wrong thread... This was my WTB thread for a coinbox.

Lol. I guess you are correct. I have a small coin box. I have no idea what it came from. Let me get a pic and I'll let you see if it is what you need

#7 6 years ago

I've never seen one of those coin boxes in any of the games I've owned that came with the smaller door (Alien Star, Bounty Hunter, Jacks to Open & Royal Flush Deluxe, I'm thinking there are probably more). Thanks for posting pics of one.

Actually, only two games use this particular coinbox--touchdown and the games. The 80A games with a wide black door (like alien star) use a different coinbox entirely.

I've been putting together an identification guide here: http://www.pinwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Coinbox/Cashbox_Identification_Guide

That's pretty interesting... never knew the different coin doors albeit I don't own these two.

So they basically switched back to the normal size when Premier took over with w/ Ice Fever???

Yep. Looks like Ice Fever was when they went with the more standard-looking black coin door. I was going to add which games came with which coin doors in another update.

Gottlieb sure went through a heck of a lot of different styles and sizes over the years. It's been quite a task to try to document them all.

I'll have to tell that to the owners of the games I mentioned in the post above that the games I sold them with the smaller doors don't exist. They'll be disappointed.

This is the narrow coin door I was talking about.

I had to look this up on IPDB.

If I'm correct, El Dorado & the City of Gold (9/1984) was the first Premier pin not Ice Fever. That is one pin that I do own. Funny I don't recall the coin box being like that one pictured.

I'm confused here now...

Edit: I think I answered my own question

#15 6 years ago

Huh...so I looked on IPDB for alien star...looks like it does use the narrow coin door. The last time I saw one, I thought it had the wider door. Ah well. Looks like the production order for the games was a bit jumbled.

#16 6 years ago

I've owned both version of the coin doors in the games I've listed, just never thought I'd get to see a coin box for them. I didn't like the smaller doors, that's why I sold them.

Wait, so for the games you listed, sometimes they had a narrow door, and sometimes a wider door?

#18 6 years ago

Yep, I kept the type with the larger doors, easier access. To me, the smaller doors looked odd.

#19 6 years ago

Huh. I wonder what the reason for that was. One or two games I could see as an experiment, but there were a lot more than that according to your list...

#20 6 years ago

Ok, I've updated the identification guide accordingly.
