This was made by Sterns sometime around 1978. We grew up near a hoagie shop that had a pinball machine. There was away you could lift it without tilting it while racking up points. So many points and you would get a free game. If the owner had a problem with the machine he would put a quarter in the machine to see it start up. That quarter would have red nail polish on it, when the owner of the machine would come in to collect his quarters he would give the hoagie shop owner back his money. So if you see quarters with red on them, you'll know why.

    Interesting story. My pinball machine also will tilt, that's part of the fun of an EM pinball I think. Nice Sterns!
