    Hi !
    I recently bought a 1965 Gottlieb Ice Revue - that I hope I will find the time to restore .

    But one thing has caught my curiousity already: there is a four digit number stamped in the wood under the coindoor (5688).
    Was this factory made or is it more likely some import or aftersale marking ? What could it stand for ?

    As far I know, the game has been here in Sweden since at least the mid or late seventies.

    Thanks in advance !

    Thanks a lot !
    Obviously I´ve got to read a bit more about old pinballs in general.

    Yes, You´re right. It must have been a stressful day at Gottliebs when my cabinet was stamped, or someone couldnt find the "0"-puncher for the full five numbers

    @jar1551; thanks ! Yes, I looked it up a little bit here in pinside before buying it, and it seemed like a rather good EM-player. Then when the seller lighted it up - I was hooked. The backglass art here is also great, especially in a dark room. There is something about it cosmetically that really stands out- in my mind at least.
    Apart from that, here in little Sweden- these wedgehead oneplayers are rather rare, so I did not want to let this opportunity slide by without grabbing one.
    For every 30 EM-games that are offered on our sale sites, I'd say max 1-2 are wedgeheads.

    I find the wedgehead/oneplayers have a particularly nice symmetry when you compare the backboxes to for instance the Williams 4-players from the 70's- which in my mind are just to big and "squary". Saying that without disrespect to the Williams EM-crowd - they are all wonderful machines of course

    Have a nice weekend !

    I'll post some pics of my machine on pinside, as soon as I cleaned it properly and replaced the the rubbers and bulbs. Before- and after pictures of course.
