Not quite a horror story, but a very worn Mata Hari. I told the guy, if it was in sorry shape but it was working, it would be worth something to me, or if it wasn't working but was in good shape, it would be worth something to me, but as-is I wasn't interested. He told me it was being thrown out if I didn't take it.
Amazingly, there are no broken plastics, and the backglass has a couple of small scratches but no peeling. MPU is super corroded. Coindoor looks like someone took a pry bar to it. I was going to part it out, but now I'm thinking I'll throw an Alltek in there, clean and touch up the pf as best I can, and see if I can get it playable.
