Locks and Bonnet for Prince Slot?

Hi guys,

I have a rare but not tremendously valuable Prince slot from King Equipment Corp. Made in Benton Harbor, Michigan around 1934. Described in Richard Bueschel's Slots 4 on page 93. Wonderful very small machine.

Mine has a replacement lock for the front. It's also missing the bonnet and the lock in the bonnet. Rick Hector did a fabulous job fabricating a replacement bonnet without a lock. Still, if I could get any original parts, I would be (incredibly surprised and) quite happy. If you have source for the locks or bonnet, please let me know.

Unsurprisingly, it seems Prince locks and bonnets are impossible to find. I did, however, get several inquiries about buying the Prince. Nice little slot.

There are likely 3 (or more) different bonnets. I'll include pictures that show 3 different versions of the Prince coin heads, so there will be different size bonnets to fit them.
