The Internet Pinball Serial Number Database or IPSND collects serial numbers of
pinball machines and publishes a database of these on the Internet. Our goal is
to make available a registration of all pinball machines in existence and allow
tools for slicing, dicing and visualization of the data.

It was pretty exciting here in Northern Colorado this morning... windy and icy... with that also was the first time we lost power for an extended period (3 hours) in about 7 years. The site was down most of the day after my VMWARE box finally drained the last power from the UPS batteries.
submitted the 41,000th serial number today. Thanks for everyone's support... Keep the serial numbers coming!
10000 nudges and counting... Congratulations!

Goodwill Industries of Southern California posted a Nip It pinball machine for sale
they claim was owned by Henry Winkler. Mr. Winkler's iconic Happy Days character, The Fonz, was known to play a Nip It machine throughout the show's run. So theoretically, you could own Fonzie's personal Nip It! It doesn't look like provenance is offered or if this was one of the actual machines used on Happy Days, but the site says that Mr. Winkler himself donated the machine to be sold. Regardless, a serial number was visible in the photos, and is now a part of the IPSND
Thanks to IPSND member Lenny Esposito, we have added a new trait to the Gottlieb/Mylstar game Jacks to Open
to identify test units that featured an alpha-numeric display. To read more about the test units, head over to the Jacks to Open page on the IPDB
