How to determine the age of a Patterson table?

How to determine the age of a Patterson table?

I grew up on DMs and have owned 3 over the years.

I ran across a Patterson table with DM markings too.

WE are slating it for a restoration next year.

Can someone help me with where it falls date wise ?

Are there any part sources?

This link suggests 1962 - 1973 for starting range... http://www.foosball.com/content.php?page=92

Let us all know if you find original parts in a time capsule somewhere!   Try http://shop.foosball.com/generic58.html for so so quality new (but now generic/aftermarket) parts that may work for ya.

Cheers... Jim

Hi Jim

Thank you for your response and links 😎👍

I was aware of the suggested timeline. I was hoping there was a way to determine where it lies production dates and model.

Parts- as a US National VideoGame Team Member and Inductee in the International VideoGame Hall of Fame I have travelled to a ton of arcades, I guess now Iíll start asking 👍

I came across a DM coin mech a few years ago.
I still have it in a box 😎

I may have some parts, not sure what though. I'll try to dig them out this week.

If there are pictures of this 1960s Patterson / DM type of machine new or product specs, parts etc that you can obtain for this project that would be great. This restoration will start the first part of 2019.
