When your looking for a pin to buy does it matter to you if there is damage you can't see? Such as behind a ramp or under a cliffy, some place inconspicuous. I don't personally think it affects game value at all if it can't be seen. I have read some posts elsewhere, where people wouldn't buy pins with damage anywhere, even if they can't see it. I'm not sure how they could know that in most cases since you normally can't just take a playfield apart real quick or easy. Don't get me wrong, I like everything to be as nice as possible, but if you can't see it then it doesn't matter to me.
