    Don't confuse a NIB price with the lower sale price to distributors.

    Grand Prix, Williams 1976: BoM $402, price to distributor $945.

    How much of a percentage markup would the distributor have added? Because honestly, it looks like we were spoiled for a time with sub-4K Sterns and Pro prices are now where they 'should' be.

    If anyone has been hurt by pinball prices over the years, it's the Brits - not because of inflation, but because the exchange rate from pounds to dollars has been in decline since the 80s. Used to be almost twice what it is now.
