    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    So can anyone identify what game it's from?

    That looks like a Gottlieb upper arch with its serial number sticker in the corner. That coil bracket makes me think it's an 80's title.

    Quoted from wantdataeast:

    I turned a decent one down(with only a few minor issues) for $800 last year.

    You are nuts! If you turn done down for $800. It's a $2500 pin.

    Quoted from alexanr1:

    My go to source on any pin that I have never played is Todd Tuckey TNT amusement YouTube videos. I had never played "Whodunit" I watched his video and was not very impressed with the game, Todd did not seem too impressed either.

    I am at 14 pins right now and have room for 4 so... also, I have about 8 project pins in the mix, I guess I could have picked it up to trade but that would have been my only motivation. I do not mind leaving a pin for the next guy if I am not too excited doubt it. Maybe it found a home with someone that would appreciate it more.

    People text for work, business, and sales.
    Why the hell allow your phone number to be included in the ad anyway if you do not want it to be in first place? People have CL options, but I guess some people have refused to learn to read (or spell). Failure of the USA education system in example.

    I prefer email for ads. That way I can respond to them on my own terms and arrange a call/meeting time, rather than be interrupted at all hours of the day and night.

    Quoted from ForceFlow:

    I don't disagree at all, if that is a preference, it has less interruptions and helps weed out "tire kickers".
    Pricing levels is not an effective method, as that brings in more scammers if the asking price is high.

    However, email is still an EXCLUSIVE option for contact on CL.
    All they have to do is allow only the anonymous email system, and not allow random phone calls.
    Problem solved.

    If an owner wants a "fast sale" the other method works better, but is going to require sorting through some issues.

    Nor certain it's book value but probably. Working pinball machine as the only description doesn't help either. Under 1000 my guess.

    If he's selling them as a lot why the Hell does he have individual prices?!? And 2800 for Close Encounters? For that price it better be an EM (and still priced lower).

    Pin zipperheads don't think when they write. He has already sold machines out of his "lot" sale, and "broke his own rules". I seriously doubt many of these machines are full restorations or "mint". It sometimes comes down to moronic sales pitches.

    You would be surprised right now.
    New collectors drop over $90k in less than 6-12 months. Of course, they then sell it all less than 2 years later.

    It's possible it was appraised at that value but what makes him think he can sell it for three times what it was appraised at?

    FUNHOUSE PINBALL MACHINE. MUST SEE! TOP 10 ALL TIME LIST!!! - $4995

    Average example, various wear, faded cabinet.

    Quote: "I have seen these machines sell for $5000-$11,000. Most of them for about $6500."
    No, this is propagated fairy tale by new collectors, and not reality.
    This is another example of artificial inflation that is hurting the secondary market.
    Non-informed sellers reading to many nonsense articles and Ebay.

    I want to see the $11k Funhouse, it better be a high end restoration with a NOS playfield or the game is NIB.

    There is no "right time" in this hobby.
    If you wait around 5 years the market at the current rate will stall again, and prices will drop mostly due to the overabundance of modded games that nobody wants or can afford and manufacturers that price test until buyers choke.
    However, it will not make the hobby more affordable overall in the long run, as "classics" will continue to rise.
    If a person wants "good games", they are out there at acceptable prices, a collector justs has to put on their "big game hunter" hat, and be willing to learn and how to fix games.
    You can still buy hundreds of early SS and EMs for less than $500.
    HUNDREDS.
