Looks like BFM to me.

Possibly an after-market conversion.

Possibly one of  A.F.D.( Automatic Fruit designs) club electro's before they went into liquidation in 1979.

Their earlier machines started with credit counters in the top glass so has to be a later model.

It has the same cabinet, style of game and relay bank as AFDs previous Club electro's.

Trying to keep up with other manufacturers they had trouble developing their own MPU and cancelled orders mostly from abroad which left them stuck with 200 none U.K. machines in stock and over £300 thousand pounds of raw materials and no current production model at the time that put them out of business.

So with plenty of stock cabinets available, If not their own build then one of their base machines with a rebuild from another company.
