Notes: The Billboard ad shown here from June-18-1932 has a picture of this pin table, with turned legs. The price of one machine was $59.50. On the front of the cabinet is a Jackpot Attachment as standard equipment even while the ad also shows this attachment sold separately to convert other non-payout games into payout machines. This attachment lacks a key lock on its left side as well as any knob used to release the jackpot coins when a ball lands in the Jackpot hole. How it releases coins is not explained. A month later, a Billboard ad shown here from July-9-1932 shows a picture of an obviously updated attachment. By August of 1932, this manufacturer expanded their street address from 1117 Cambridge Street to 1113-1119 Cambridge Street, and changed their advertised name to American Games Engineering Company, reasonably indicative of a business expansion.
