I recently received this message from Laurence Fisher of Christies:
A few machines were left over from the May sale, but these will more than likely be returned to Mr. Costa. On behalf of Nic, a thank you to all who attended both the main slot sale back in January and this one just gone.
Since the May sale, I have consigned the following which will appear in the & November auction of Mechanical Music and Technical Apparatus:
A Mills 'Castle Front' bandit, 1933 Estimate £500-800
A Jennings Little Duke
(number reels - 'female' re-cast front) Estimate £300-500
A Jennings Governor bandit with lit panels
& 6d. Play Estimate £200-300
There is also a chance of a few others, but only if the vendors of the machines are willing to provide the Gambling Commission their details so we can obtain the permit to sell them.
Viewing for this sale will start from 4 November- Saturday at 10.00am - or on request, I can send you pictures of these over an e-mail (See Christies site for email details).
