    Quoted from RyanClaytor:

    ...but this time, "VERY VERY RARE" according to the ad's title.

    Clearly very rare. It's the perpetual game model. Play all day on one nickel.

    Whizz Bang for $350 in Chicago. Very dry looking. I bet it would really soak up a new coat of finish but could be a nice transformation.

    This time in Raymond, NH instead of Binghamton, NY. This time $300 instead of $1750.

    I didn't notice the first one was local...I have a feeling I know who that seller is. If it's who I think, he runs an antique store and when he has a pinball machine it's always priced astronomically...no exception here. lol

    1940 Exhibit Supply's Lancer - $750 - *note - this is my posting, but CL pics suck, so I wanted to post them here.

    tulsa.craigslist.org link

    Pretty neat game considering the age - the playfield magnet is super cool and still works great. It can run off of batteries or the transformer.

    That is beautiful - I love the early magnet games.

    #608 7 months ago

    how do the magnet games play? What are the rules?

    #609 7 months ago
    Quoted from cait001:

    how do the magnet games play? What are the rules?

    Lancer is not a player-controlled magnet game. When the button at the bottom is hit, it operates as a rollover button to score or advance bonus with a magnet underneath that can throw the ball around, hopefully striking the rollover multiple times. Skillful nudging off the bottom rebound post allows the player to get even more action from it.

    Another game I am on the lookout for is Exhibit's "Treasure Chest" - that is the first truly player-controlled magnet I've seen in any game, but there may be others. Lancer is a full 7 years older than Treasure Chest.

    Treasure Chest has multiple ways to win and a really big payoff if you can dive all the way to the bottom of the ocean!

    Those Exhibit glasses are always so colorful. Love how they rainbow-ize the points/score on almost all their games. Haha! So cool.

    Anyone know what this game is? Looks like a Gottlieb "Five Star Final" knock-off.

    Pic says "Six Star". https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=4615

    Def less features than Five-Star Final, which it's based off of.


    less metal cups, less pins used, seems like cheaper wood, etc

    The video mentions there were various knockoffs, and IPDB even has this as "Unknown manufacturer"

    VintageVideoGames.com in McLean, IL is purging a bunch of project pins listed here:

    https://www.vintagevideogames.com/project-pinball-sale

    ...and I spotted a couple of flipperless games in the bunch:

    -------------------

    Yacht Club - $800 - 1940 Chicago Coin - 1,506 produced - A Pre-flipper pinball game with great artwork and in great condition.

    What makes this one a project: Just needs a little tweaking. There isn't a lot to these early pre-flipper games. Just needs set up and checked to see if it's all working, and if not, some tweaking done.

    ​This game is in excellent condition...especially considering it is 78 years old. cabinet, playfield, even backglass are in great shape. Still has original legs and original painted coin door.

    ​Pictures: https://photos.app.goo.gl/vuhV5k9fpMUWd9L77

    -------------------

    Hawaii - $500 - 1947 United - unknown production - This is a beautiful pre-flipper machine. ​

    What makes this one a project: I've never set it up and plugged it in. Looks to be pretty much complete and in good shape. It might be fully working - don't know. Bought it about 10 years ago from a guy with a ton of machines who had no idea whether it worked or not, and I never even set it up. Either way, shouldn't be too hard to get fully working -these early games are pretty simple mechanically.

    Also, this game is physically in remarkably good condition for its age. The backglass looks nice, minimal flaking overall. The playfield looks gorgeous, very little wear. The cabinet even is in pretty nice condition, including the original coin door which is fairly uncommon.

    #626 7 months ago

    Jay calls them "Reclined Back Boxes". I like 'Slant Heads' or 'Slope Heads', but they both sound racist now that I think about it.

    Here's a list of games with "Reclined Back Boxes" on the IPDB. Many of them also have animated backglasses.

    https://www.ipdb.org/search.pl?ft=reclined+back+box&sortby=name&searchtype=advanced

    #627 7 months ago

    Seems like you wouldn't be able to put it up against a wall for fear that someone would slam the top into it.

    I think the idea is neat (for visibility), and everything old is new again (see late-model Stern games with the reclined displays).

    #628 7 months ago

    I wonder how the reclined back boxes would come off? I'd be worried about it crashing to the ground.

    Game: Short Stop
    Manufacturer: Exhibit
    Year released: 1940
    Type: EM flipperless

    OP: We just got this 1940's EXHIBITS SHORT STOP as a trade in from a homeowner. It is super clean! Homeowner had it since she was a girl. It doesn't work but it shouldn't take much to get it working. This is a rare find, has a very neat rotating playfield! Baseball themed.

    Ah-ha!! Thanks! I've been talking to him...he didn't mention the other ads. Which would have been helpful...but he's also not the most enthusiastic seller I've ever dealt with either...lol

    And like I expected - that's a terrible place for the flippers...they are right in the way. Maybe if you shortened the distance between the posts adjacent to the flippers it'd be better...what can ya do!

    Boston has flippers but I don't think you will mind me posting this.

    I went and picked up the Boston from this seller yesterday. He is a longtime jukebox collector/parts dealer and a really good guy...his long collecting career made it seem like he's un-enthusiastic like I said, but I think he's just been doing this a while. He got the games in a package so he could get some jukes, and doesn't know pins very well.

    The four games he has left have nice BGs, but one, a Genco Victory, is missing the glass, and all the caps. Same story on the caps for Exhibit Grand Canyon. The Baker On Deck is an interesting game from a unique manufacturer and except for some PF wear, in decent shape. The Amber is also decent, but has flippers added as we already discussed. I should've looked closer at them when I was there, but I'm chatty and was busy chewing the cud with Mike.

    I made several lowball offers for all the pins, the Boston alone, Boston&Amber, and Boston&OnDeck - but he accepted my Boston only one. Judging by the differences, I'd say he's looking for 100 each on the games that have BGs...maybe a little more for Amber, and the Victory is a parts game, so less on that obviously...

    I just have too many games and not enough room to give him what he wanted for them...the Boston is my third example of this game, and the best one as far as condition of everything but the BG. But the BGs on the other two are very nice, and one of the PFs is very rough, so it'll probably be a "make two out of three" type project someday.

    It appears that this has been relisted at $500.

    "For sale is a very rare 1940 Exhibit Lancer Pinball machine. This game is one of the first electronic games with a backglass. The score changes on the backglass by lighting different combinations of numbers. This game has 4 rollover switches and 18 bumper switches. It also has a play controlled magnet near the bottom (which may be the first game in history to contain this feature). I'm pretty blown away by how elaborate this game is for 1940. The nickel coin mech still works and will fire up a game just fine. The game is 100% complete other than the back cover on the head. The cabinet art looks great with minimal wear and the backglass has minimal flaking. The original glass and front moulding is included but was removed for pictures."
