Super collectible antique pinball machine for restoration. Worlds Fair Jigsaw is considered to be the most collectible 1930's vintage pin game in existence. Created in 1933 by David Rockola (Who later ventured into the jukebox manufacturing business) to celebrate the upcoming 1934 Worlds Fair in Chicago Illinois. The first of Rockola's completely mechanical marvelous machines (followed by World's Series in 1934) the player has ten balls to try to complete a jigsaw puzzle picture of the fair. At the beginning of the game, all the puzzle pieces are on end and as a player lands the ball in holes, from one to four puzzle pieces are rotated flat displaying parts of the picture. Completing the puzzle in ten ball's is difficult, but possible. The marquee displays point values associated with the number of puzzle pieces completed. With the disclaimer 'No gambling permitted' the marquee also advises the player 'Completed score must be shown to clerk on duty as soon as made'. Rockola Worlds Fair Jigsaw and Worlds Series represent the peak of the completely mechanical (no electricity) pin game period.Game has three legs and is missing the front plate and marquee, as well as the glass.
