Hey Guys,

Picked up my first Vs. Cabinet (RBI Baseball) and found this box in the cabinet...any ideas what it can be?

Looks like it's a coin counter of sorts, seems to be tied directly to the coin mechs, with no wires going to the game PCBs.

Here are a few photos. -- Any ideas?

Whoa, that is a heavy duty relay setup. I see a few orphan plugs hanging out by the coin mechs, best I can tell it was crazy free play mod... maybe a card reading type like Dave and Busters. Where does that skinny black wire go up by the control panel?

Is there any odd bolt holes or openings cut into the front of the cab?

Yep, there was a single hole for a light which was wired to the coin door lights, I've removed all of these items, and have restored the coin light and coin switch wiring, thank god the install was neat and real professional, wasn't hacked up too much.

Just have to work on fixing these holes...i really don't want to paint it as the laminate is in terrific shape.

Thanks,
Jj
