    Backglass help needed

    I am looking for a couple of backglasses and was wondering if anyone could help locate used ones or with scans.

    They are:
    1. Laser Ball (Williams, 1979)
    2. Panthera (Gottlieb, 1980)

    I appreciate any info and many thanks in advance!

    Cheers,
    Stan

    It looks fantastic until you light it up.
    Light doesn't penetrate through the glass so it looks very dull.
