Notes: The Encyclopedia of Pinball Vol 1 lists this manufacturer as 'Dixie Music Company' but all magazine references of this time that we have found show the name as 'Shayne Dixie Music Company'. The name of this game is shown both with and without a hyphen. The company was started in 1913 by Bill Shayne and in a 1938 article was described as "one of the largest, oldest, and most successful music operating firms in the country." At the 1932 Coin Machine Manufacturer's Association of America convention in Chicago's Sherman Hotel, in Booth 47, this company debuted a game of their own design, the 'All American'. It appears to have been their last pin game. The design of pins and pockets resembles a Whiffle game. While we list this game as non-electrical, the information seem inconclusive as to whether this game is electromechanical or entirely mechanical. Automatic Age March 1933 page 40 describes the various exhibitors at the February show and states this game "was shown in two models, with or without a self-loading jackpot feature. It is an improved pin table with a pay-off. They are deluxe in size and appearance." An ad in the May 1933 issue, page 80, further identifies the two models: The "straight" model sold for $27.50. The Jack Pot 5-way Self Loading model sold for $47.50.
