We recently have had a flurry of inquiries as to what these missing
coin-slide and interior coin-catchers look like, the latest being
yesterdays thread by Mathew Caulfield on behalf of Don Naples.
For some years now, we've been making and supplying the reproduction
5-cent Regina coin slides (#55 on style No. 5, parts diagram) which were
used on so many of the Regina instruments. Professional dies were made
to replicate the exact dimensions and styling of the original upper and
lower steel slides. They have a light nickel wash plating and are
affixed into the machined yellow brass cast mountings, along with their
crude yet effective, spring loaded anti-slug device.
At first glance a rather simple project, but like most all, each
unit contains 11 parts and there is quite a lot of hand finish work
required. We finish about 6-12 each time around as it is not a high
demand item. We sell these at $200.00 each (not including postage),
ready for installation. Please contact us if you should have a need
