1951 Gottlieb "Minstrel Man" for sale. This game is 100% complete mechanically, has been sitting in storage for a long time, and is a very rare and fun to play title from this era. Would make an excellent candidate for a complete restoration.
The cabinet is original and is structurally sound, with just the normal wear and scuffs. Inside of the cabinet and backbox are both very clean, with no rust. Front coin door is missing the Heath Chute coin acceptor. One side of the head shows paint loss and scratches on the bottom half.
The playfield is in good shape, shows wear in only a few areas, mostly around the three pop bumpers, and should clean up nicely. The inserts are all present and level. Playfield dead and pop bumper caps are all nice and original. The drop targets are present but repros are suggested and are available, if desired.
The backglass is a nice original and is in very good shape, with only a few minor wear spots.
Score/instruction card is missing, but repros can be made.
All woodrail games will come with a nice set of either metal or wooden legs of correct length, as appropriate.
Please see pictures for complete details, and PM me with any questions, etc.
