When Caille came out with the first Front Jackpot in late 1928 as written on in Marshall Fey's book and other books and other manufacturers followed suit in 1929 there were many companies that seized the opportunity to "Revamp" the older slots, before 1929, with front jackpot lower castings, so many that there are too many to list, some lasted for a while and became prominent in the industry while others were short lived just taking advantage of the change over so research on this particular lower casting revamp design would be interesting to follow!
Are there any casting marks on the inside as some, but not all companies would identify their castings in this way!
Personally I have seen it before but cannot at this time remember which company did it, does anyone out there know!
