Notes:Pictured here is a playfield that we have designated Early Production because it matches the playfield on the game in the manufacturer's flyer. Its "clubs" and "spades" are colored blue while the regular production playfield shows them in white. Also, the sequence of suits below each kick-out hole is different. The metal lower apron has the art design of the flyer game, otherwise it is found only on 'Bowling Queen' and 'North Star', both from 1964, and on 'Central Park' from 1966. The serial number on the certificate on the upper apron is not legible. The cabinet serial number is 04166 which, when compared to reported serial numbers, seems to be on the early end of production but not the earliest. This playfield may actually be from a Sample game and got placed into a later cabinet, but we cannot know this.
