San Francisco, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 09, 2011
Elite gamblers and even well-heeled amateurs travel the world in search of new challenges and thrills, so it's no surprise that there is now a global interest in collecting slot machines from the early days of mechanized gambling. International collectors can take comfort that Squires & Corrie in San Mateo, California can convert an antique machine built for one currency to accept a different currency.
Steve Squires is an expert in collecting and restoring vintage slot machines. His company Squires & Corrie has retooled machines to accept a wide variety of currencies, including French francs, Swedish kronor, German marks, and Italian lire. International collectors who value period detail admire Squire’s ability to convert a machine to accept the currency that would have been used in their country when the machine was new.
This international reputation is just one of the many qualities that set Squires & Corrie in a class by itself.
"I don't know of anybody else who does it," Squires says. "We will restore machines for anybody, anywhere."
Squires takes on antique slot machine restoration projects from around the world—no challenge is too great. But locals who just need someone to have a look at an old machine or who simply want advice on how to get into collecting are always welcome bat Squire and Corrie.
