A unique trio of nostalgic pinball machines will be going under the hammer in Honiton this weekend.
The eclectic collection have been put up for sale by a collector in North Devon, and will be sold at Chilcotts Auctioneers in Silver Street.
Not in pristine condition, the machines would suit a dedicated collector who is prepared to take on a restoration project.
All lots are sold as found and none of the machines have been PAT tested.
The three pinball machines are:
• A vintage late 1960 William’s Ago-Go invented by Norm Clark. It was the first model of pinball machine to use a captive ball spinner.
• A vintage late 1960 William’s 8-Ball pinball machine
• A William’s Tales of The Arabian Nights from the mid-1990s.
Sold as collectors’ pieces, estimates for the 1960s machines are between £100 and £150, whilst the 1990s machine is estimated at £200 to £300.
The sale starts at 10.30am at Chilcotts’ Silver Street saleroom, near Honiton Community College, tomorrow (Saturday, May 5).
