......Otherwise nothing else is planned: I like it when I see a machine that has (small) marks that tell its age.

Totally agree with this, it adds charm to our old classic games.  Smiley

I 2nd this!! Smiley

Everybody to his own, but I like the 'scars' of age on my cabs Smiley

Well.....it depends for me. My former Midway Galaxian had some battle scars on the side art, incl. some initials carved, but it was just fine. My Berzerk is way too good to do anything to but it also shows its age a bit.
But Ms.Pac and Q*bert just needed a fell restore. I love both.

Here are the docs.....it doesn't really say they started with 101 but since both docs mention it as the first number I think it's safe to say that at least the production machines started with those serials....maybe there were pre-production ones, but I've never seen any.

Note that also the cocktail table serial numbering starts at 101 so I think that was the way they did it.

By the way, the German flyer is not the only place where your version appears, it's on the manual too, and in smaller size on the U.S. Flyer.

LOL

Modification 1: insert capacitor between coin switch connectors to avoid loss of credits
Modification 2: apply tilt switch to avoid problems caused by modification no. 1

Thanks for these.

Dreaming of a Namco Galaxian waiting in a barn for me... somewhere! A Nintendo Sheriff would also make me happy. And a SNK Sasuke Vs Commanders or a SEGA Samurai... Argh too many; in fact!
