    They were called cocktail cabinets. They were big in the late 70s early 80. Some had multiple games on them. Space invaders was extremely popular.

    I would look up Jatre cocktail cabinet or sit down cabinet.
    Yours is kind of cool with the Japanese writing

    The King Tut exhibit was all the rage when it hit the US in 1977-78. That seems to correspond with that time frame.

    I used to own a bunch of coin-op video game machines until they all broke (Which they ALL do because they are very temperamental due to their age) I eventually dumped all mine at an auction, and oddly enough at the perfect time as they fetched huge amounts of $.

    Your game Tutankhamen, was made in 1982 by "Konami" and released by "Stern" Konami is still around today and is a huge game company, Stern I believe was out of Chicago and built many coin-op cabinets and released lots of 80's classics and some pinball machines. Sadly though, Tutankhamen was NOT hugely popular among gamers so this game died out pretty quick and I am afraid it doesn't hold much value, probably less than $200.

    HOWEVER, what you do have going for you is the cabinet! "jmack" is correct, this is what they call a "Cocktail Cabinet" and these cabinets ALWAYS sell for more $ than the standard "Upright" cabinets. Collectors will always pay more for Cocktail cabinets BUT they have to have a collectible and sought after game inside such as "Mrs. Pacman", "Galaga", "Donkey Kong", etc. These games in a cocktail cabinet can fetch up to $2k, maybe more.

    My suggestion would be to do the research and find out which PCB boards (Video Games) fit and work with your cabinet controls, and but one of the above mentioned games for cheap and simply convert the cabinet to that game. You can buy these PCB boards on Ebay or at auctions for coin-op machines and also you can purchase the original (or copied) artwork stickers to place on your cabinet for the chosen game. Hope I was of some help.
