Depends on the people. Main of the potential buyers, at this price range, would want the game first without to care of owning a sample or not. At the same time, if you had the choice, for the same condition and few bucks more, I would buy a sample but it’s just me. I would prefer having something more unique but I’m really not part of the majority. Also if it was my second TZ i would prefer a sample too.
200 is not that rare, i would consider a real price difference (reasonable of course) for a proto.
There are around 10 to 20 proto out there... and those were assembled in slow built months before by the design team. Sample are production pins... not the same for me.

... also I think the third magnet is not even plugged (or have a magnet) on sample. I leave Coyote to share his knowledge if he wants. (Best TZ and CV expert for me)

Quoted from Coyote:

They weren't, unless you got a very, very early sample. (This would include sample games that had a 19-light Door Board with spaces for *all four* flashers.)
Since all the work is there, it's not difficult to do (already have two 7x opto boards, may have the 6th spot populated in the 8-drive high-power baord) - just buy optos, a magnet, and voila!

Thanks! I didn’t know that was even possible
