It is a DPDT switch and it either connects the two wires from the octal socket to each other or it connects them to the octal plug.

Do you think its connecting pin 6 of the socket to pin 6 of the plug and pin 1 of the socket to pin 1 of the plug, but independently switched, ie not connecting all together? and what about the commoned end, are the connecting pin 1 and 6?

This should be an easy circuit for me to understand but for some reason its giving me problems :)

In one position, it connects socket pins 6 and 1 together, in the other position, it connects socket pin 6 to plug pin 6, and socket pin 1 to plug pin 1.
First position gives free games, second position connects the coin switch for payed games.

It looks to be a DPDT switch.

In the Freeplay position you have 1-6 shorted out on the octal socket.

In the Normal/Coin position you have 1-6 shorted out on the octal socket and the octal plug.

Does the switch have 3 positions? It could have a center off when nothing is connected.
