Is a NOS Williams Defender backglass really worth $700?

    Evidently the seller for the Mr. Pinball thinks so:

    "Decided to sell my new old stock Williams Defender pinball backglass. 369 games made total so this is a rare item. $695.00 plus shipping. Really would prefer someone to pick up in person. I will have double box (2) to use if needed. Shipping to the lower 48 only."

    If I had a nice Defender that was missing a backglass and a Stern Star wars that was missing a topper. I'd be more prone to purchase the backglass than the topper, especially if I was unable to source a backglass elsewhere. It's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. I've seen lesser items sell for more in this crazy hobby.

    I’m considering it. Any Condition Defender Pin brings big dollars today. A new NOS backglass would finish off a nice restore project. BGResto has them but they don’t have the chrome accents (just shiney gray). Most Defender backglasses have issues so finding a decent used one for this rare game is doubly hard.

    Its probably a tad high, but trying to find another NOS glass for such a rare game is going to be extremely tough.

    My star light was missing its glass when I got it, BG resto was an option but I was able to source a very good shape original from mayfair. Was it pricey? Sure, but when it comes to collector value, an original will be more sought after.
