Oldest machine in the wild

Star 
Have just seen a video on YT of a Big Banker in a pub in 2011.

Got me thinking, what is the oldest machine you know of in the wild? Obviously excluding arcades - more pubs etc.

20p 10 quid Andy Capp in my local gilys which is quite unique in this day in age.
2 mark 2 each ways at the coast, monopoly 60, roller coaster, Las Vegas strip, great escape, viz, Las Vegas, road hog, andys great escape, and plenty more in the same place, roker has a 5p 4 quid cops and robbers, a mark 3 each way nudge, and mark 4 double up deluxe, just a shame nearly all seaside places up and down the uk are now basically in terms of classics, rather poo, quite unreal how bad fruits are these days when you look back, manufactures should be ashamed and even jailed has it's quite criminal the amount of crap released over last 10 year.

Ooooh and a 30p psycho cash beast 15 quidder at the coast plays nice and often does a nice streak, had jackpot on it last week then next board started on skill stop giving you the streak indicator, but actually killed me that board never seen that before, neverearless next board cherrys climbed up to blue sevens exchanged ended up with reel magic for jackpot and repeated. 

I then proceeded to play monopoly 60 10p 8 quid got yellow bars and repeated, exciting times, Unfortuantely it keeps resetting now and again with that daft alarm thought they had cured this fault I while back,  I then went on 10p 8 quid Indiana jones could of took pathway to riches but quite a few lights out so pushed on 6.40 of snake pit, get in there.

I then went on Andy Capp 5p 6 quid most of these pay out 20ps instead of tokens, I got 2 jackpots on quick succession think this as a dead battery or something because it plays pretty well for a 5p fruit.

I went on 10p great escape as well it went red but wouldn't let me get jackpot on yellow mode to enable streak pot, I'm guessing the 5 quid version is a bit dodgy in terms of the old red knock back.

I after have the big slab chips and curry with scraps next door as well very nice ?

Lots of other fruit related things happend as well such as putting in 340 quid in a concept 50p 100 machine full, basically bar x 7 ish clone, silly getting envolved with this stake, did manage about 210 of it in the end but could say it was a bit of a tussel.

The larger of the two Silvers in Stafford still has a Vivid 'Quick On The Draw' from 2001!

Pubs/clubs... a more difficult one and this goes years back: I remember around 2005 time I went to a pub/bar in Paisley called Suberbia that had a Maygay Italian Job II from 2001. So was already a few years old by that point and it was badly maintained. At least 50% of the bulbs were gone. Stuck £3 in it and I had no idea what was going on!

Well if we're allowed arcades I've got an original and I mean original as in the one before the 1980s clubber. A casino royale. Alas it's not switched on, it just states 'this is what our customers were playing in the 1960s'. There is also a working Monte Carlo or Bust. Just up the road there are some original Bell Fruits on £1 jackpot on the original hardware, no Fair Games rebranding.

Few year back the Garrick in town had an old bfm 10p 4 quid cops and robbers, it's now got 10p bfm tubular bells 5 quid and next to that is a barcrest 25 quid mega zone with about 4 lights working, up the road not to long ago the red lion had a 10p 8 quid Reno reels enjoyed playing this with a few pints.

Stay away from my Fletchers, I have it on good authority that Casino Royale was pumped with 20 shillings before being switched off.  Now it's just a waiting game until it is brought back into active service and that £1 (token) jackpot shall be mine.

I've got the pinball table well covered too.

Played a Cops and Robbers in Mablethorpe last week. Got the Cop the Lot feature on the 3rd lap of the board. Also played a Miami Dice in Ingoldmells. Some stuff just needs to be played for old times shits and giggles.
Visited a club a year or so ago on holiday which had a prize space invaders in it.

There is a place on Mathew Street in town that - well last time I went in anyway - had a Doctors and Nurses (I think an Extreme machine?) in it

Yeah Doctors & Nurses was an Extreme IIRC. They still crop up from time to time at fairground arcades as £25 and £5 versions.
