Here is the description on the listing.

"Great shape, rebuilt, well-maintained. Includes spare parts and manual."

I am waiting to receive more pics on this machine. With the single photo and the description, I feel like this machine is over priced, right?

What would you value it at with the current info?

Thanks in advance!

Here are the additional photos the seller sent. He also included a 12 second video. The lights and siren appear to work.

Went out to look at the machine. There is a chip taking out of the top right side of the back box. Its probably about 2 inches by 2 inches and about 1/8th of an inch deep. It has been spot painted black. The playfield is lightly faded. There is a warped playfield piece just above the left flipper. It has mylar on the playfield. There are some minor marks to both sides of the cabinet. Only one light bulb out that I saw.

The pin was powered up, but the start button didn't initiate a game. He said he is going to correct it and will ask me back out to play it if I so desire.

He says he has owned the machine for 24 years. He has the original manual and what looked like a purchase receipt that I did not get to look at. I don't believe he is the original owner, but one of very few possibly. We didn't discuss price yet, but he said that when he looked around online, he saw them listed for anywhere from $750-$5000.

What are your thoughts? How much would you offer?

Just got the text, he says he has it fixed, going to be heading back out there to take a look at it again soon.

*Final update*

Okay, went out and looked at the pin again, was able to play it. The pin is not properly leveled so it plays slow. He has it set to 5 balls and kickback is always lit.

There was small playfield wear around the top right corner. he had mentioned that the batteries had corroded onto the board in the back box, but he appeared to have cleaned it pretty well, I was not able to tell. Holes had been filled where there had been a lock bar installed before and painted over.

I started with an offer of $650. He looked at me as though I was from another planet. Again, his asking price is $2750. I asked him if he wanted to throw me a counter offer. He said, "Not when the divide is that far." I attempted one last stab at $800 and you could see he wasn't remotely interested if the offer was going to be so low.

He isn't a pinhead. He's owned this one pin for 24 years. He's done a little looking online and I believe he believes he can get an offer significantly closer to what he is asking for. He doesn't understand the true value of his pin.
