...since there might be a guy on this thread looking for a Space Invaders set of backglasses...
When I saw the listing was changed to cabinet only, I was hoping you snagged the backglasses...I see that's not the case. Now he's got the bottom, legs and coin door for $50...I'm guessing he got at least 150 out of the head.
Yesterday it was $400 and only worked sometimes, but after he "sprayed some cleaner on the contacts on the plunger switch it seems to be better now." If anyone is interested, might want to get to it before more repairs are done and the price (of the game and the repairs) go up more.
That's a surprisingly nice looking lockdown bar and coin door given the shape of the rest of the machine...
I'm picturing a disagreement that led to a hammer taken to someone's favorite toys, and a divorce... To pick up two hammer beaten pins at a garage sale sounds like it was personal.
Quoted from northvibe:
I’m out of country until Friday. I’ll be checking in with the seller Saturday and see if it is still available. I hope it is, really excited for a machine to use a hardtop on and do a nice restore
I see it's listed as sold, were you able to grab it or was it someone else?
Quoted from bluespin:

Game/Type: Spanish Eyes / EM
Year: March 1972
Location: Tulsa, OK
DATES: Auction closes 06/27. Fred P. Otts Auction.
Am I the only one thinking that the cabinet was stripped to reduce weight? Those eye bolts aren't holding the weight of a full machine, even if some was distributed to the back. But hey, those shoes look nice...and dusty.
Quoted from cottonm4:
You are only 48 miles from that Meteor. You should consider picking it up.
I know, had a meteor, great game. Unfortunately I'm sitting on 6 machines with wife approved space for 3. Really no room for another half a game. Believe me I thought about it before I posted. Although the backglass seems like it's getting reproduced now.
