Ahhh. I wasn't even looking at the coin slots. They managed to line up the angles of the cabs exactly the same for photo (and yet they put a 100 yen cab on the English flyer and a 25 cent cab on the Japanese flyer).

Yeah, I just started looking at the Space Panic bezel (I may be getting a scan of the header in a few months) and it's in even worse shape. The vectorization (done by Zoid I believe) was faithful to the scan, but the scan itself was way too dark. When I turned up the brightness on the scan it revealed all kinds of missing details (like the bug's legs and the astronaut's face). I'd hate to have to redo it from scratch but I'm not sure what else I can do.
