I have a South­ern Belle one-armed slot ma­chine. It was pro­duced 1959-1964, I be­lieve, but I have no idea of its value. Neil Bur­ley, via email Your “one armed ban­dit” is rel­a­tively rare and was made by Cam Au­to­mat­ics. It was 3d a play – three old pence – and the most you could win was a shilling. Val­ues range from €290 to €2,300 and while an in-per­son in­spec­tion would help, I’d say your ma­chine is maybe in the lower end, at €400-€630. Peo­ple like to col­lect these colour­ful items, though you need a lot of space and some good know-how to main­tain them. ‘Ban­dit’
