But isn't that one of those fish tales they all say?
Let me guess, the guy selling it even threw in some new balls and wax.

I sent an email about an estate sale 10 days ago inquiring about the prices on 2 pins they had pictured. It was far enough away that I wouldn't make the drive if they didn't understand pin values.

2 days ago I get an email that 1 is still available and has been moved to a location 20 miles from my house. The condition was incredible. The back story was it was in a bar that closed down in 1979 and went into storage then. The machine was made in 1979 and electronically needs help but physically very nice. The price was very reasonable and I brought it home.

Still in shock that this happened. I will probably never encounter a situation like this again.

If I could work for $60 an hour I could afford better liquor.

I believe this story. Who would make up a story about a Panthera?

I think he was referring to usually when you get there, the pin is gone, not that it wasnt there all together.
