Here you'll find some scans of some original literature relating to slots and coin-op machines in general.
The following brief descriptions each contain a link to a page or pages containing scans of the associated coin-op related paper. Because many of the scans are of full 8.5 x 11 pages the link may pop you out of the frames style pages and the navigation buttons on the left will disappear. Just use your BACK button when your finished with each page to come back to this page. Enjoy.....
