Blue front

Postby jsin » Sun Jul 09, 2017 7:14 am

Hello friends,

Looking for any feedback on this blue front. It's a local sale. I am no expert by any means , just learning as I go. From what I can tell , looks to be authentic. Says plays , pays correct. Nothing is jumping out to me that says "fake reproduction machine". I certainly could be wrong..and missing something tho... thus why I am asking. Seller asking 1600 . I think thats a bit high. Seller says willing to negotiate tho. I am thinking 1100 or so if all is in order. So if u have a moment let me know what u think. Thanks again.

Not a repo. Cash box is a repo and maybe award card. The rest looks good. Go for it. Talk him down a bit.

HI

Looks all original to me . The strips and cash box may be a repop. The 1100 price is just about right. Figure $900 to $1200 depending if it works properly and not missing anything.

In going over all the pix, this machine appears to me, to be all original. The reel strips are original, judging from
the yellowing of reel 1, and the small marks on the others. Even though the award card looks new, it could still be
an original, as some models did come with an etched metal plate, as shown. The only things I notice, are a few
newer springs on the mech., and the front castings may have been repainted at one time, but done correctly. The
$1,600 price tag, is not that far out-of-line, as long as everything functions, and nothing is missing. But, of coarse,
work on the price. Just don't piss-off the troops, and lose it. Good luck.

Thank you to all that replied. I did make the purchase for 1200. Everything looks good and plays nice. All smiles.
