Multi-Bell 7 Play - A C Novelty or Buckley?

I probably know the answer to this already, but thought I'd throw it out to you guys who may be more knowledgeable than me!

Multi-Bell, the incredible 7 Coin Play Bell machine, was conceived and manufactured by Adolph Caille under the name A.C. Novelty for 2 years 1937 to 1938. Then, due to it's sales apparently being a flop, they sold all the components to Buckley who then decided to put these together until approx 1944.

However, is there any possible way of distinguishing a genuine AC Novelty made machine from the ones put together from Buckley? Please don't say look for a sticker, as most machines have lost the service sticker! Is there any definitive way to be certain?
(maybe Buckley made a slight change or filed a part differently?)
