English penny machine

Postby joefaro » Tue Dec 16, 2014 4:41 pm

This is a machine I bought a couple of years ago. It plays on a large English penny and works great. Any one know who made it and what time period?

Hi Joe,
Your English machine is actually a German slot machine mechanism in a British cabinet, The Duchess was made in 1961 by a company called Melroy Products. Melroy used the mechanism from A Gunter Wulff "Beromat" model that was the only machine that Gunter Wulff made with fruit symbals, every other machine he made had Totalisator symbals. He not only used the mech, but also the original coin handle essembly, the payout tray was from another Gunter Wulff model called Novomat.

My late father was the first man to import the German machines in 1959, see picture of my late mother at the London Show in 1959. also a copy of the reel combinations used on all of Gunter Wulff machines during the 1950's.

Marty Bromley head of Sega brokered a deal for Bally to buy the Gunter Wulff company in 1972, he got $1,000.000 brokers fee. Marty also assembled the early Sega Bell models in the Gunter Wulff factory in Berlin in 1960.

See also a picture of the mechanism that my late father converted to the old English penny.

Good Luck.

I have a Duchess English Penny machine, the arm and coin acceptance had been removed I have them put back together but not sure how all the springs go. Does any one have some pictures or a diagram I could look at to put the springs back on. Thank You very much

Hi there
I also have one of these machines. I bought it several years ago, and now my wife is tired of looking at it.
It seems to play well, and lights up.
It is a Dutchess, and I am trying to come up with a value, any help?
Thanks
