Item description

1954 Gottlieb "Gold Star" for sale. This game is 100% complete mechanically, has been sitting in storage for a long time, and is a fairly rare "double award" game (for an extra coin inserted prior to the beginning of game play, any replays won during that game would be doubled), and fun to play title from this era. Would make an excellent candidate for a complete restoration.

The cabinet is original and is structurally sound, with just the normal wear and scuffs. Inside of the cabinet and backbox are both very clean, with no rust.

The playfield is in good shape, shows relatively little wear in only a few areas, and should clean up nicely. The inserts are all present and level. Playfield pop bumper caps are all nice and original. The playfield plastics are quite good, but reproductions are available, if desired.

The backglass is original and is in good shape, with only minor flaking.

All woodrail games will come with a nice set of either metal or wooden legs of correct length, as appropriate.

Please see pictures for complete details, and PM me with any questions, etc.
NOTE: Please use the following email address for all questions/requests: [email address removed] . Thanks!

Payment methods accepted include: PayPal, Cashier's Check, Money Order, Cash. If picking the game up in person in Alameda, CA we will have someone to assist with loading, etc. If shipping, we prefer to use NAVL.

NOTE: This game comes from the collection of the non-profit Pacific Pinball Museum (PPM) located in Alameda, CA, and is one of our duplicates of certain titles that we are selling in order to reduce our warehouse storage needs and to raise funds for the PPM. In addition to certain EM and Solid State titles from the 60's and 70's, we will also be listing for sale several Gottlieb woodrail titles from the 1950's over the course of the next several weeks.
