Quoted from FelixTCat:

Such a strange combination of playfield / backglass and cabinet.

Looks like the backglass and play field are correct, but...but maybe it was owned by a King at some time in the past and he wanted a custom cabinet.

Quoted from AntennaMan:

He had salvage listed as the condition, so maybe he was offended by the other end of the range, asking if it was playable. It was a pretty broad range, I was just looking for clarification toward what end of the scale he thought it fell.

That guy was a total jerk. No one ever complained about his attitude in 64 years....Yeah right! Probably what he meant to say was no one ever complimented his good attitude in 64 years.

Quoted from too-many-pins:

I don't understand the "lack of love" for Magic and the low selling price compared to other Classic Bally & Stern machines? This is a fairly low production machine you don't see come up for sale often yet no one seems to care about it? Or at least the "average selling price" indicates no one cares about it.

Frankly, the artwork for me is a turn off. I wouldn't want one.

Quoted from seshpilot:

For me it's the primitive beeps and boops; if it had chimes, Magic would be a rockstar.

Strange...that wasn't my quote that was attached to Seshpilot's post.

Quoted from Agent_Hero:

You can usually find a pallet or ten outside grocery stores like Kroger, around the back where the semis deliver. Buy a $10 pack of the neon orange ratchet straps at Harbor Freight...maybe a roll of shrinkwrap and cardboard or whatever your padding items of choice are when shipping. When you have it all packed and strapped to the pallet, take it to the back door at the Fastenal store. Knock on the back door, give them the password, and they'll take your pallet and ship it.

I just completed my first shipment with Fastenal. To further others' comments, I can tell you they will not insure the game unless it's in a wooden crate. Forget that. Mine was not crated, only shrink wrapped. It arrived fine -- no damage. Of course, it all depends on how well the shipping party protects everything when strapping to the pallet. Nothing can extend past the edge of the pallet. So you must strap the cabinet to the pallet standing up, not flat. They must be able to unload from your trailer/vehicle with a pallet jack. It is probably easier for most people to just bring the pallet and game separately to the store, then get it all wrapped and strapped to the pallet at the store. I found the Fastenal people very helpful. Pallets are available all over the place. Straps are cheap at home depot or harbor freight tools.

Quoted from trk12fire:

Does Georgia own 50% of all the pinball machines in the world, or am I missing something?

Here's a depressing thought....99.2% of the pins you want are located too far away from you to pick up. Of the remaining 0.8% within driving range, 78% are overpriced. So if I did my math right, you have less than 6 tenths of 1 percent chance of findiing and buying your next project.

Interesting. Mary's Eager Beaver looks like the same EB in this pinside ad looking for a back glass. The white painted cab and the scratches on the cab look the same.

All beavers look pretty much the same.

A prime candidate for restoration or you can part it out."

Quoted from bluespin:

A great pin came up for sale cheap in your city. No road trip? I’m jealous

I had to drive 12 miles one way! Does that constitute a road trip?

A year or so I picked up another Aquarius project in Cincinnati. It's all finished now and working in my collection. Figured the working machine would help me troubleshoot this new project. And like my previous one, this one is painted over the original stencil. It'll be getting a repaint back to original design after the broken cabinet is all glued back together.

WALKED AWAY from a project for the first time. What a disappointment. Guy has a collection of 400+ pins (Paicines Ranch) about 1-1/2 hours drive south of San Jose. He listed on Craigslist Mata Hari project. I called and we discussed. He described the cabinet having just some "flaking paint" on one side. The play field and backglass he said were "good." So I made the hour plus drive (3 hours round trip). Flaking paint and good backglass my ass.

The side of the cabinet didn't just have flaking paint...it was missing like a section at least 12" x 12" on one side. The cabinet was delaminating and missing the bottom supports. The backglass was toast. It looked like 30% of it was covered with touch up paint. Very sloppy.

I was expecting a project, but definitely not as described. Beware if you ever go there to buy something. Not as described.

Quoted from Daditude:

Were you able to look at any other pins

Yeah, walked through some of the collection before I looked at the Mata Hari. It is a very impressive collection indeed.

Quoted from Daditude:

I gotta ask...did you make an offer on anything else...or a lower offer on mata hari?
