    I've seen that for sale for so long, it's gotta be over a year.

    I think you can generally determine the selling party by the price point in these situations.

    Somehow I think this seller is the primary user/owner of the pin - thus they really don't want to sell it, or want to sell it for twice the amount figuring they'd have to give half to the spouse.

    I think if a disgruntled spouse were selling "that cheatin, no good so and so's" pinball, it'd be going for $1

    I called and a very angry sounding woman answered and stated the price in a very exasperated tone. Maybe she is getting a lot of inquiries asking her to drop the price, but she definitely didn't sound like the primary owner/user. I was hoping for the "get it out of here for $100" situation.

    There goes that theory. I've made all kinds of sweet deals on stuff an ex is trying to clean outta his/her life. I'm wondering if it wasn't estimated a higher value in an agreement. "Baby, no worries; you'll get $3K outta this thing easy. And that'll settle what I owe you/on ......"

    If she's had it an extended time, I'm surprised she hasn't gone all Office Space on it with a crow bar on the front lawn just to get the $2200 in brute satisfaction.

    I guess there's no accounting for the actions of a women scorned.
