Thinking of selling my SF and not really sure what to price it at. It works 100% except for the coin mechs on the door. Here are a few pics.

I’ll be first to respond and I don’t think you’re going to like our opinions. Honestly, it does not look like you did any improvements to the machine since you got it. Works 100%, I’ll take that with a grain of salt.

The cabinet has been painted over with some form of green. A lot of work there. LED’s installed throughout. Pops need to be rebuilt, which tells me much more work is most likely involved.
As a collector, I would offer $250, maybe $300 tops, because I know how much work would be involved to bring this machine back to life. Just my opinion.

Playfield and backglass look good. If not previously done, I usually rebuild the pops and replace the plunger/link and sleeve on the filppers...so that will be about $50. Could make a decent first game so I'll agree with $300. It's a game I'd put between two other games.

I'll be more generous and say your game might command $400-500. Too bad the CAB has generic paint job. Looks pretty good otherwize.

Yep close, probably $450.00 or less, but as far as someone paying an extra $400.00 to ship forget it, you'll have to sell it locally to get that price and it may take a while. I'd even think about buying it if you lived next door.

Just my 2 cents.

When you compare the backglass to this one, it doesn't look all that good:

As long as you ignore the Asian girl’s flaky tan legs on the right.

These machines don't grow on trees. Your back glass looks fine. I really like this ERA of Williams.

Hi,just a thought.but you should do the little bit of work it needs and keep your machine.unless your hurting for money or it is a(i don't have the space )issue.you will prob regret it later.just store it in a climate controlled area and decide next year.

I agree with this.

Ya badly faded backglass, painted cab... 200 to 400.

With the painted cabinet and the faded backglass, this would be a solid $300 machine on the private party market... If there is a game room shop in your area, maybe you can do a consignment, and they can sell it to someone who knows nothing about pinball machines for $1500...
