    Default Dating mid-60s Nishijin model A singleshot w/all Japanese characters

    I've seen some info on deciphering the labels with the labels listing the expirations (Showa era where you add 1925 to the number). But I don't have an appropriate 2 digit number (I suspect i should see one in the 40's, this should be a late 60s machine I am thinking, actually brought back from overseas by my brother in law in the early 70s).
    Now i also read that some have all Japanese characters, so supecting this is what I have and need to have the labels deciphered to determine the year.
    Is there anyone here that is an expert in reading the labels on the front of the machine? They are all very legible.

    Can you please post some pictures when you get a chance. I can be very possible that the sticker with the date is gone. On many older machines it seems like they got peeled off.

    For now you might be able to figure out the date by a similar machine on member Rival's site.

    His dates on the single shots seem right to me. I have yet to double check them though.

    100 machines and counting...

    Using the link given above, it looks the most like the 1967, but has some features of the 1968 as well.

    EDIT looks like a 1967 with a 1968 playing field.

    Here are the pics, I have a few more I could post. Again if you compare my machine with the pics on the link above, the machine itself looks like the 67, but the playing field looks like the 1968, for example look at the light in the middle.
    The labels, from a "pachi-museum" site I was looking at, it seems like the expiration date should be on the middle label, but they did show examples like mine where it is all in Japanese characters.

    None of the labels have any numbers on them so the expiration sticker must be located elsewhere.

    I have an identical machine. Did you ever figure out how or where to decipher the kongi script on them?
