Anyone know what these Bingos are worth? Assume they don't work.
Circus Queen is a great game and can command some $ when fully working. But oddly, that game has the wrong head!? I've never seen a Circus Queen in a late-model (late 70s) head. If you pick them up, please post the serial # for that game - head, body, and playfield.
Mystic Gate and Border Beauty are worth less, Mystic Gate less than Border Beauty. Fewer people are drawn to the 20 hole games than the 25.
Dude Ranch is an excellent game as well - but has a pretty faded backglass with quite a bit of touchup (not uncommon). That will be worth somewhat less than a Circus Queen, fully working.
You're looking a few thousand dollars, if they're all up and running 100%.
Non-working, maybe $500 or less for the lot.
I took a few bingos to an arcade auction a few years back. They were set up, clean, and kinda working. I told myself I M not bringing them home and let them sell for whatever they bring. I think All 3 together brought $25 and I had a $15 auction fee. Not to mention the work moving them, driving them there, paperwork, etc. I know one was a key west title, the other might have been a silver sails. Obviously didn’t matter.
Unfortunately they are worth very little to most people. The collectors market for these games is really small compared to what you would find for a Early SS Bally or something else.... I ended up saving a somewhat similar type game because I was the only person that didn’t want to watch it thrown out- it had been priced at 400 and eventually zero. I doubt you will find them profitable to flip of that’s the intent. They are a cool piece of history and amazing machines.
Maybe a stupid question, but are there bodies? If not, then adjust that price way down.
If there are, the condition of those was factored into my estimate. Pics of the sides of the heads would help, as well as photos of inside the back door (both sides) as well as the playfields.
