You guys are just going to love this!!
I'm fairly persistent when I want something and don't give up that easily. I now have the full story on this Mermaid and I'd love to share. I know a few of you also want to know.
I spoke to the real owner of this machine yesterday and .... THIS MERMAID DOESN'T EXIST!!! Never did!!!
It's a 1970 Gottlieb Scuba 2 player. It has Mermaids on the Backglass and also on the playfield.
It's still for sale and I do have the contact info from the owner if anyone's looking for one.
Now go back and read through the BS that was previously posted on this and you won't believe what you're reading. I'll let you draw your own conclusions. I've learned a lot and who to trust from this experience, a real eye opener.
This machine won't be headed to the Silverball and if they end up with a Mermaid, it won't be from this owner.
I'm guessing the person who started this post might chime in too.
And my playfield still will wait for another machine in need. I'm in no hurry
