This is a really smooth running Mills QT Chevron nickel slot machine. I have owned a number of mechanical slot machines over the years, and this one is hands down the smoothest operating machine I have ever owned.
I actually hit a jackpot playing it recently, and it dumped the coins from the left side jackpot all over my kitchen floor! It was pretty cool to watch it slowly refill the jackpot as more coins were played, and then it started diverting the coins to the coin box. Anyway, here is what I can say. It was restored at some point, but I don't know when. I bought it exactly as you see it, and have done nothing to it.
The coin box is a repro of course, as is the back door (I'm pretty sure). Obviously, the awards card is a recent reproduction. Please, look at the pictures of the reel strips. I THINK they might be original, or at least period replacements.
I don't know for sure. Anyway, the machine runs super smooth, and overall it looks GREAT!
If you want to send a foam filled barrel with a call tag, I will put it in the barrel and call your shipper. But all of these arrangements must be made by you.
