      I was amazed to see the 82S129 with a date code of 1997 in the coin mechanism. It is a 256×4 bit bipolar prom design dating back to the early 70s. It most likely is used as the brains of a hardware state machine in the coin mech. Most HW designers by the mid 80s would be using a PAL or GAL for such a purpose. Woz used a pair of these type of PROMs to hold the Apple 1’s 256 byte system monitor in 1976.
