The Internet Pinball Serial Number Database or IPSND collects serial numbers of pinball machines and publishes a database of these on the Internet. Our goal is to make available a registration of all pinball machines in existence and allow tools for slicing, dicing and visualization of the data.

Comment: As with most of these very early games, the serial number was scrawled with a marker on the bottom or inside of the game. This 1931 game is no exception. For you new to the hobby solid state guys, this really is a legitimate number and it really is on the bottom of this game. Ask any old timer and you will get confirmation that this was the method of marking serial numbers on pinballs in the early days, even into the late 40's and early 50's for some manufacturers.

Nudge History:

Nudging allows IPSND members to adjust the SerialBot score for a submission with a photo attached by determining of the photo clearly shows the existence of the serial number submitted. However, nudging is only 'Open' until there is a clear determiniation of accuracy by members. If a serial number has more than 5 nudges and the total of those nudges is greater than 4 or less than -3, then the nudge will be closed automatically after the last nudge. If a submission is controversial and there are nudges in both the positive and negative direction, then the nudge will remain open until the balance of voting swings the point value beyond 3 (positive or negative).

9/17/2013Pistol Pete-1I realize that this game is old enough that Genco probably numbered games in this fashion, but there are no other submissions for comparison. Without a wider shot that shows more of the cabinet attributable to Buster Ball, I unfortunately have to give a thumbs down. :(
