This is what I believe a prototype translite. The commonly used translite for this pinball machine was larger and had cut outs to accommodate the score displays. See my other eBay listing to compare to this one.

This version must have been made for a different Gottlieb cabinet style with the score panel above the translite artwork. The model Excalibur used that particular cabinet design.  See the close up photos as there are several differences as well such as the white Premier Technology 1988 text that in on front lower area.  The common version was dated 1989 and did not have the captions next to the left side characters.

Full color original pinball machine translite.  A pinball translite is a flexible art sheet that is placed behind the clear glass on a pinball machine. The clear glass is NOT included this is just the translite. Measures 20" X 25". This item is quite scarce. Shipped rolled in heavy mailing tube. 

FYI: Translite artwork was intended to be used inside a pinball machine behind clear glass. The lights inside the pinball machine will illuminate the artwork.  The item may also be hung on a wall either framed like an large art print or back lit with lighting if you build a special wall box with lights behind it. A few photos show how nice the item looks when backlit with LED lighting.
