Name that Northwestern Clone!

Recommended Posts

Curiosity abounds on this one.  I cant find any numbers anywhere on any of the parts.  One of the glass globes was replaced with a NW Glass globe the other is generic.  If anyone has information I would love to hear it.

-The Lid, Hopper, Chute Door and Base are all plastic.  Chute door has two washers on the back to make weight.

-The Body is metal.

-Coin Mech, Chute and Chute Cover are all really good copies or have been replaced.

At a glance, I'd agree on Ahsland though I didn't think they made anything with metal or glass in them at all. I've only ever seen the plastic ones out in the wild.

Over the years I have acquired some of these machines when buying routes. They were actually pretty dependable but were rough and the plastic globes always (as mentioned above) looked terrible so I eventually replaced them. Those glass globes appear to be Northwestern.
