Big Three, 1945

Features: 1-ball or 5-ball play. Passive bumpers (12). The flags of the United States, Russia, and the United Kingdom are depicted on the backglass. They were the "Big Three" leaders who, with other allies, opposed the Axis powers during World War II. Shown in the upper backglass are representative symbols for these leaders: a cigarette in its holder (US President Franklin D. Roosevelt), a pipe (USSR Premier Joseph Stalin), and a cigar (UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill).

Notes: A conversion of Mills' 1940 '"1 2 3"', priced at $249.50 The name of this game was previously shown here as 'Big 3' from a Billboard ad dated Aug-25-1945 page 84 identifying the game as new, upon which this listing was based. However, that ad was cramped for space and the Coin Machine Digest ad shown here supports that, by showing the correct and longer spelling of this game. The backglass indicates 'Big Three'. Inexplicably, the manufacturer spelled the name as 'Big 3' in a 'Coming Soon' ad in Billboard dated Apr-7-1945 page 81.
