Seek Coin Slide for Regina Table Music Box
By Reg Smith

I am repairing a Regina tabletop disc music box which is (was) coin
operated.  It seems to me that when these are incomplete, it is
usually the interior linkages which are missing or damaged, but this
one has all the innards and is only missing the coin-slide which
attaches to the front of the case with a single screw from the inside.

This part looks a lot like hundreds of common coin slides from other
types of vending machines, and it just accepts the coin to drop into
the balance cup within, which in turn trips the governor.

I know this is a very long shot, but worth a try:  Does anyone out
there have a coin slide for a Regina or similar dated machine that
you would part with?  Perhaps someone may have a Regina or similar
music box case without mechanism which might still have the coin slide
intact?  Any help or advice much appreciated!
