Quoted from FrostyMug:

Whatever you are told here for value, take it with a grain of salt Always keep your guard up! Double and triple check outside of public forums!

I've noticed that geographic region plays a pretty big role in the value of the game as well. I could be wrong, but I've noticed that out in more rural areas, pinball prices tend to be a lot lower, and around cities, there's a bit of "pinflation" just for being in or near an area with a higher average income.

I live right outside of Philly, and I can tell you with almost complete confidence that a Barb Wire will sell for no less than $2K around here. If it's got a DMD and it works, regardless of the title, it'll sell no cheaper than $2K--and that'd be a "steal." Now, if the game were located out in Iowa or Wisconsin, it'd probably be half that, but here sandwiched between NYC and Philly, people think they can sell that dusty old game in their basement to pay off their student loans.

Deals crop up every once in a while around these parts, but you have to fight to get them.

Quoted from Whysnow:

lol. You do realize that Chicago is the radiation of all things pinball and it has more popularity in this area than most.

Yep. In my hurry to type in something, that state came to mind first. Just mentally edit Wisconsin for Oklahoma or Nebraska or some other wide open state.
