    Hello

    Looking for advice with my first post. I've just gotten into the passion of collecting pins and I want to make sure I don't miss out on a great opportunity with my second purchase.

    There is a very nice, clean looking Earthshaker machine for sale in my area. The owner has spend hours tearing down, cleaning and restoring the machine and is now asking $2500 for the item. The high average on Pinside for an ES machine is $1500. Is the asking price of his machine to high? Should I expect to purchase the pin for around $1500? How should I use the averages when looking at purchasing a pin for my collection? What do you believe to be a fair price for a nice looking and working ES pin?

    Thanks in advance!

    Here are photos of the Earthshaker machine I was looking at. What do you think of the look compared to the asking price?

    TheLaw - How much was the asking price for the LAH? I am looking at one right now that has cabinet damage from being in an arcade and a little paint missing on the ticket of the playfield. The offer on the table is $1450, I feel like this is to much, am I wrong? What is the top you would be willing to go for such a condition?

    Thanks to everyone for your thoughts on the ES machine. I felt it was overpriced at the $2500 and I don't believe I would pay more than $2000, maybe not even that high. You guys helped out a lot
