Archer is an electric bagatelle machine - basically an early pinball machine with no flippers. It is mains-powered, takes a three penny coin and give 5 balls per play.

It has 10 passive, scoring bumpers, though the central central bumper (only) looks rather like a 1950s-style active bumper. In addition there are three, electromechanical ejector holes and a final, ball exit switch.
