Had a line on a pin and made the owner an offer, they are not pin people. They just happened to have one and indicated it was broken and they already spent a few hundred getting the board fixed only to have it fail again and it had been sitting for some time.
I threw an offer at them of about half market value which is realistically $3000-$4000 in good condition (one just sold down at Allentown for $3100 that was pretty sweet) and was told that they have seen them sell for $7500.
I explained my offer was based on the expected need of a replacement CPU board and of course servicing the unit that had sat for years not to mention what ever had burned out the last CPU. They were politely thanked for their time and I headed for the exit.
How do you deal with someone who gets pricing from American Picker?
