Quoted from cottonm4:
How is it any different than a bunch of populated play fields leaning against the wall in an operator's shop? At least the play field is still alive and being preserved. I have a pin that I would love to find a play field preserved like that to put in one of my pins.
It is a table because it quit working and making money for the operator. Prices were cheaper in the past like "this is junk" cheaper. There were no repro circuit boards. A coffee table saved it from the landfill or a leaky roof warehouse with mouse population making nests everywhere.
If it was leaning against a wall would that make you feel better?
Whoa! Playfield heaven
