Quoted from Mvfvette1:

It's much more likely that the mylar was never put down. The lower mylar did not come factory installed, it simply came with the game and the buyer could choose whether to apply it or not. With these older games that did not have a clear coat on the playfield, it didn't take too many plays for the the black around the inserts to start wearing. This is especially true if it was a novice home owner, that didn't keep it clean and didn't change the balls too often, or ever. Judging by the very small amount of wear around the the spinning discs, I do believe this to be a true home use game. A few more pics of the correct areas would clear up the issue very quickly. In my opinion, this is a super nice game and the cosmetic flaws can be fixed pretty easily. Once that's done, this will be a beautiful, mostly original, low play game. I'd rather have this than an old pig with lipstick (beat up routed game with aftermarket playfield and cabinet decals). If I was the OP, I wouldn't give this one away.

The mylar for the lower playfield is in the envelope with the other original materials that came with the game.

Quoted from Methos:

OP - can you get some pics of the underside of the PF/cab? That might help.

You probably have enough pricing opinions so here is my hot take: don't sell your Whirlwind, you will regret it.

I agree... don't sell it, unless you have / need to. As you'll definitely regret it

Funny ! He paid $2395 I believe but it was his first NIB game . I don’t think he would take 10k . We still have our first game that started it all a Gottlieb Volley. Can’t put a price on these pins .

Agree. I can relate as I have a Medieval Madness I bought new in 1997.

My Whirlwinds weren’t new but I combined one with a great cabinet and one with an excellent playfield to get my keeper. Sold the remaining game with an NOS playfield (which I probably should have kept) but would have to spend well over $4k to get a WW as nice as the one I have now. It is absolutely amazing how fast any decent WW sells for these days. WW (and to a lesser extent EATPM) have got to be the most in demand System 11s these days.
