Up for sale is a 1935 Automatic Amusements “DEALER” PINBALL GAME – Early Coin Op Pinball. I could find very little info about this game, but if you are looking at it, you know it is RARE! It was designed by Harry Williams prior to his founding of what we now know as Williams Electronics. This game has missing parts and a damaged playing field. I do not have a key to it, but it is real cool. The internal parts seem to be mostly there. The coin mech is sticky, but will work. It actually moves the entire board inside so that the balls can fall down. It originally had 4 legs, but they were missing when I located this game. Please as very detailed specific questions and I will answer as best I can. Cabinet including moldings measures 39 inches long by 19 3/4 inches wide. Cabinet not including moldings measures 38 1/4 inches long by 19 inches wide. Cabinet without legs measures 9 inches high at front and 11 inches high at back. From Internet Pinball Database… In an interview with pinball historian Russ Jensen on March 18, 1978, Harry Williams, founder of Automatic Amusements Company, stated that Bally and Exhibit in a few instances bought the rights from him to manufacture and distribute a few of his designs. Jensen writes that as part of the deal, Bally had to credit Williams as the designer. He doesnt write that Exhibit had to do the same, but the Billboard ad in this listing does show that credit. The Instruction Card was printed by Exhibit Press, an unlikely mention if this game was made by anybody else but Exhibit Supply Company. The coin slide indicated patent #1966134 dated July 10, 1934.
