Mechanism No. 13

Early A and B coin recognition mechanism.

This mechanism was superseded by the Mechanism No. 14 which had smaller connectors.

The pictures below were all dated 1926.

Front view of the mechanism
The brass connectors are to the left, the timing mechanism can be seen centrally and the coin gong can be seen to the top right of the connectors.
Sideways view of the mechanism showing the coin transmitter (the bell shaped object to the upper left).  This mechanism differs from the one above and is possibly an early prototype.
