Notes: The replay version is Gottlieb's 1965 'Buckaroo'. Compare these playfields to that of Gottlieb's 1962 'Flipper Cowboy'. It was not uncommon for operators in Italy to modify games for 5-digit scoring. Most often, the new digit was a fake "0" but in some cases they added a real counter. We previously showed a date for this game of June 1965. The new date is per Gottlieb documentation.
