Hello Everyone, my first post.

I purchased this coin operated machine a couple of weeks ago and have not been able to determine the maker. The coin plate would lead me to believe it is either German or Austrian this is only a guess. Machine has issues (wrong crank, later reproducer and unfortunately it is missing the entire coin mechanism but still works and has a great look. Any information on this machine would be greatly appreciated?

A very minor point: the heller (six of which, in the form of three two-heller pieces, had to be inserted) was an Austrian coin. Were there any specifically Austrian manufacturers? Of course the machine could have been produced in a German or Swiss factory and specially calibrated for Austrian currency.
