    A lot of things are listed as junk, just so they don't have to guarantee that it works, although it might anyway.

    Could be missing internal parts, hard to tell.

    Good ol Hollup, they sell a lot of stuff!

    True enough - problem is, Hollup are "...unable to tell you what's wrong. Its missing some internal parts. We don't understand these machines. We sell it listed as Junk and you buy it with that understanding. No returns, no objections, no exchange...". And they don't answer questions on individual machines...

    at own risk...

    Looks like a couple obvious things missing from the back of the case, but that could be them laying at the bottom right.

    hmmm perplexing. i compared my Satomi to this one. granted, these evolve just like everything else and changes are to be expected and this one looks more sophisticated than mine. anyway, here's my thoughts. the coin mech is in the top center of the pic. i see no chute to lead from that down to the coin "slide". either it's missing that part or the slide area is bent or broken in it's current position. to the right of the coin tube on the right end of the slide is an overhang. that's where the coin overflow box goes. there's not one pictured and that may be what the box shaped object in the lower right is. actually i'm pretty sure that's what it is. that would also explain the lighter patch on the wood though it seems aligned oddly. my Satomi has a circuit board mounted to the back wall and that to me is the big concern here. there is another light patch on the back where something else went. if this is missing a circuit board then you're screwed unless you somehow find another identical machine being parted out. i also can't tell if the wire bundle near the left of the large, black object is cut. the ends look frayed but i can't see clearly in that pic. i need the picture enhancement thing a la Blade Runner. cool machine but definitely iffy...

    I was looking at this auction for some time now, and well, for the cost + shipping, if it's a piece of junk, it's an expensive one.

    if we look at the inside wood board, it seem that at least two piece of hardware was attached there. The discoloration (dust) of the rest of the wood show that some part was attached there.

    So worth it, someone is buying it?
