Ok I haven't seen a thread like this and I thought it might be fun if people are interested in it. If there is already an ongoing thread for this feel free to lock it and point me over to that thread. Or to move it to the correct section, if it should be elsewhere.

But I am working on fixing up my first machine, and I just ordered my first set of Pachinko balls, I ordered two sets of 500 so I will have a 1000 in total, they wont arrive for about another week or so, but I got to thinking about how many should I own?

The set I ordered from was from Ebay, and it stated that "Most balls are smooth, with some engraved may be mixed in" Which I find really cool that some might even have a mom and pop style engraving showing where they came from. I also saw a lot of listings for golden pachinko balls, so I figured a thread showcasing the collection of just the balls might be really fun.

How many balls do you have in your collection? Do you prefer Silver or Gold, and what is the most interesting engravings that you have found?
