Near mint Playfield.virtually no wear .

Sweet! Jealous, too!

#3 9 years ago

Dang, how the heck....did they have it shrink wrapped for the past 30 years. Great score.

#5 9 years ago

If it was a "Free Fall", I'd be knockin' on your door about now! Really sweet piece though. Give Vic Camp a call!

#6 9 years ago

What's the play meter read? Looks low plays, no ball track on the upper arch.

#7 9 years ago

Vic guessed about 30,000 plays. I say less; maybe 17-23,000. What's it read?

JR, did you get my text?

Yes, I sent a reply. Wanna come and take a look at that game but work has been crazy and other stuff happening as well. It's gonna happen.

Joe....I talked to Adam and he sent me a picture of the game meter. It read 32,795.

#11 9 years ago

The machine has 2 play meters. One is for the 10 cent slot and the other for 25 cent slot.

The blue meter looks wrong.

Quoted from Chrisbee:

The blue meter looks wrong.

Well, if by wrong, you mean not factory, then yes. It was likely added by an operator BTD.

#14 9 years ago

You're on a roll lately!

Nice!

#15 9 years ago

Awesome find and that playfield looks mint.

#16 9 years ago

Love me some Wedgeheads

#17 9 years ago

I'm going back in time with my collecting. I'm really enjoying the older stuff like this.

30? More like 50 years! Very nice pin.

#19 9 years ago

I have bought 3 and made the best of 3 over the years (it was at pinfest). Mine still does not look like yours. Great score! Congrats! If you need any parts, one of mine was a basket case and I have the parts at home!

I agree! I feel like I've gone "back to the future" when playing a game in nice condition.

Great find... congratulations!

Btw the play meter showing nine thousand plays seems correct. Are you sure it isn't counting all games? Have you tried putting in different coins to see if it counts both values on that meter? (does the blue one count something else?)

That is what I meant. So knowing how many games played is a guess, as the blue counter may have been in other games.
Looking at the PF, looks like it has NOT played 40k games.

Good find!
