Looking for coinboxes of all sorts

Post by R.A.B. »

Never thought I would post on a parts wanted thread/ad ever again after being employeed in the industry at the age of 27, but goes to show that you never really can't tell what twists and turns the amusement industry will deal you, so here goes.

Most "collectors" I know (who are not hardcore), don't use their cashboxes. And most all regular players and enthusiates don't use coins to operate their games. So these abandoned coinboxes often end up on shelves to store nic nacs, parts, screws, or stay inside the machine for spare parts etc. - well I would like to purchases those (not the nic nacs), and put them to proper use, so I need freaking coinboxes, lots of them, especially video game ones (black or white-not picky about those). So I am looking to purchase any coin boxes for pinball, baseballs, and whatever looks like a usually recatangular weirdly shaped metal (or plastic) box sometimes with a cover and/or handle for lifting them out of a machine when they have some weight to them. So really, any cashbox you are not using for coin operated pinball machines all the way back to the 50's, all makes and particularily plastic video game ones like in the picture below.

Do not need old arcade metal cashboxes, just pins, baseballs and the plastic video game ones still in use today.

If you still don't know what I am asking for, here are some pics - (oh god have mercy)

Thanks to those who have offered up pinball machine coinboxes, (in many cases for free) it is very much appreciated.

Still need about 10 video game plastic cashboxes if anyone has some out there that they keep stuff like (45 rpms singles)in there rather than coin drop. :lol:

Still looking for 3 plastic video game cashboxes (preferably locally) and any Williams man run unit baseball machine cashboxes, there are a variety of those so let's say for anything from the 50's and early 60's would be super.

The rest is all OK thanks to your generosity.

Thanks in advance.

Over a decade ago, I bought a Centipede that had a coin box that was modified to hold more coins!

Sorry, Row-bear, I sold it all back then.

I do appreciate your offer MrHide, but save your plastic rods for now, found the remaining video game cashboxes I needed this weekend, - standby however, never know, I may call on you to start printing, instead of bothering Chnill. :lol:

The Williams baseball ones are tricky to match to the games, regardless, seen alot of odd ball cashboxes in the past little while. Some modified ones like the Centipede coinbox depicted by Otto. Reminded me of the modded bingo cashboxes I would see on old bingos. The original coinboxes were pretty large to begin with, yet some operators made a hole in the bottom and stuck a funnel in it which led to an added locked drawer below the front of the cabinet between the two front legs. They couldn't collect those things fast enough I was told. There were about 150 operators in the Montreal area back in th early 50's, before and even after Drapeau brought the hammer down. All you needed back then to be an operator were about 10 bingo machines, an account at Laniel parts in order support the repairs and make a good living, however borderline criminal that occupation was in character. Now it is all legit if you are a corporation or the government.

Sheet ! Sheet ! Sheet ! Oh my - kaff, kaff, - those were the days I want to hold you man ! :FP:
