The 1973 Super Deluxe from Nishijin Is the most populous model in the United States.It is easily recognizable by the three plastic parts surrounding the rails on the playfield. The upper left plasic part displays squares of red and blue. On the upper right, it will have a blue piece with three silver lions, and the strip down the right will have four red circles followed by four green circles. The ball low hopper light is located behind the upper left. If the center attraction win light was not utilized, the red circles on the right bar would be used for this function. The spinners were 6-slot painted white with a pink stripe across the slots with a dark brown center. Two variations of the overflow tray emblems are known. The white with blue super deluxe with a bar extending across to the flipper, with "Its a beautiful day" stamped in the center is the most populous. The second variation uses the small pink Super Dx badge to the upper left of the ashray. This badge will display two white seagull images, a reference to the fact that Shiroi-Kamome translated to english is "White bird" or "White Seagull." On a small refective rectangle on the Nishijin badge attached to the front ball feeder tray will be the words "Shiroi-Kamome" in very small letters.

Some of the more popular center attractions include the "Rolling stone", the "Pivot cup (shown below)", and "five-lanes", although there are at least a dozen others.

The expiration sticker will be three squares, pink yellow and blue, and the number 49 will be found on the bottom of the yellow portion in a microscopic font. Due to transitions between model years, occasionally a 1973 machine will have an expiration tag indicating 50, although it should still be considered a model year 1973.

Some 1973 Shiroi-Kamome machines were retrofitted with shooting knobs beneath the flipper and re-issued in 1976.

It is also important to note that the 1973 model will have the front frame extend all of the way to the bottom, whereas a 1974 will stop short around 2 inches.

The front case was either willow wood finish, or coated with a thin almond laminate.
