Help identifying a joystick:
« on: March 27, 2018, 11:28:52 am »
Found the joysticks below in a Top Gunner cabinet that has been in storage for 20+ years so I know these are somewhat old and they are in great working condition.  I can't help but feel like they are worth something.   Their design seems very unique.  Note the ball/bat hybrid top and the plastic tabs underneath that engage the microswitches.  No brand or markings anywhere on them other than the microswitches that say Freeport, Ill U.S.A.

Any idea what these are and what they are worth?

That appears to be a Coin Control Microswitch Joystick 4/8-way.

Pretty much worthless too. They were a budget replacement stick in the old days. The plastic actuator tabs would break off, then the players would press the sticks harder to hit the switches and eventually the handles would bend.  When I find those in a game they come out, I toss them in the coin box, and I put real sticks in.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.
