Notes: 'Build Up' was the first flipper game made by Exhibit. An image of this game (not shown here) shows a schematic diagram affixed to the inside of the backbox door with a printed date of January 20, 1948. The earliest mention we found in trade magazines was in Cash Box, Feb-21-1948, page 27, in their list of "Manufacturer's New Equipment". We are seeking your close-up images of the flipper mechanisms on this game, photographed from several angles.
