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!
