    Question Sankyo/Nishijin common center attractions

    Hello, all.

    I recently picked up my first Pachinko machine, a 1974 Sankyo.
    When it arrived, I noticed that the center tulip had an American eagle motif.

    Intrigued, I tried to find out more about this design. Eventually, I came across a YouTube video featuring a Nishijin machine with the SAME center tulip.

    Was it common for machines from different manufacturers to have common elements like this? They're even PAINTED the same!

    Yes, common for game features to be on different brand machines.

    Especially center features.

    Keen.
    Thanks for the info!

    I wasn't sure if that was the case, or if one had been swapped from a different machine.

    And there wasn't even an effort to remove/cover/alter the Sankyo "S" logo on the bottom!
    Wow.
