    Default Help me find the name and years of these Heiwa machines?

    I had got these two Heiwa machines (late 70s?) and I can't find any info online about them. since the background art is the same I just assumed it was a generic common style and I'd find lots of images online, but after sifting through a thousand pachinko images I come hat in hand asking for assistance. I can't find any other shots of that generic Heiwa art, nor the distinctive left and right light crest.

    Also including a photo of the wrapped up ball trays, still with the newspaper used in 1983

    I would wager to say that is 1978-1979 model. I have a heiwa from roughly the same time period. You can tell it is towards the end of production for the flipper machines as there is a lot more plastic on the front of the machine. I haven't seen any machines like yours before though. Doesn't make them any more valuable though.

    100 machines and counting...

    hahaha I would never expect a pachinko to be of any great value. Come on, this isn't PINBALL here.
    But yeah those years were my guesses as well. Hopefully someone else will have some further info on these. I do love the wacky baseball theme.

    Here is a shot of the sticker on the front, the back of it (my friend gave me the mounting legs,) and finally a zoom on the back plastic that says SP-H
