I have a COMPLETELY restored "MELODY" that was restored from the bottom up. It honestly looks like it was just pulled out of the box from 1967. It is a very high end restoration.
I was offered 3K for it and turned it down ... it is a very collectible, fun and highly addicting pin. I laugh when people that don't really know about or appreciate EM classic games think they are $300 - $500 pins. Those prices are for beat up PROJECT pins ... NOT for EM pin titles, that are beautiful original examples OR high end restored examples. That makes a huge difference in price value and those price guides and books do NOT apply to the pinball machine examples I listed above!
