Penny Mills Roman Head

Postby flipper77 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 12:07 pm

Well - maybe not "fantastic" but nice original Roman Head. I had posted questions in the Pictures category as I was trying to decide whether to buy the machine. The seller came back with a better price and I picked it up last night. Very clean smooth mech and nice cabinet, Now the paint job is a different story. If this had been close to decent, I would have rather left this as is all original. But this may have to be refinished. Thanks to several CoinOpCollectorForum members for info especially Terick on his refinishing tips. Seller even included 50 original penny trade checks that he found in the machine originally. Will post before and after pictures if I decide to redo the paint. The cabinet is fine to stay as is with a little cleaning.

That is a Taxi Pinball Machine. Thanks for your feedback - we are fortunate to have such a fun and often financially positive hobby.

Hey Flip
I too found a 1ct Roman Front a few years back.
I restored it using One Shot Paint
I used Purple and Not Blue
What do you think?
Best
