Could I get your opinion on this Mills slot machine, I know there are only two photos but could you give me your best opinion on this listing, how authentic does this look, do you see any red flags. I have seen other machines similar to this one with the sides painted the same color green as the front, but this machines sides are wood. Thanks for your help.

IMO: looks like a decent machine but overpriced.

It was used "on the floor of the Flamingo casino"??; ask for proof and you can tell the seller that the Token Bell was not produced until 1949.
Make sure it has the token dispenser and proper linkage; no point in having a Token Bell that doesn't dispense tokens.

Most I've seen have sides painted to match the castings, but Mills may very well have produced some with unpainted sides;
call Cherry Restorations and ask him; he'll know better than I. Also, he had a nice unmolested original for sale for comparison.
