LH Buchanan Trade Stimulator 1893

Postby Shelloyd » Tue Jul 16, 2019 11:01 am

I have a LH Buchanan Trade Stimulator from 1893. Not sure if I should get it and have it restored. Or if I decide to sell, what would be the best way to do so. (Auction,EBay, selling to a dealer etc... I’m not sure if there’s a way I can post photos.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

They did not make a lot of trade stimulators;
Is it The Pyramid pin game?
Recommend you post some detailed photos; it's easy once you try it.

yes; you have The Pyramid by Bucahanan of California.

IMO:
Nice machine that is not often seen, but you may find limited interest in it.
How did you come by it?
Can't tell much from the photos except appears in good original condition.
Hopefully, the graphics on play field are readable and the release mechanism is complete and working; simple machine; not much to it.
My recommendation;
if you are going to sell it; don't do anything to it; leave that to next owner who will probably be an advanced collector who knows what he's doing.
You may get some offers off this posting, but do your research (some have sold at auction) and decide what you want for it; then post better photos and price in the For Sale section of this forum.

Look for lot #41. Sold for $13,000.00 5/14/2016
Yours isn't in the same condition as the one pictured in the auction. As far as restoration I'm far from an expert but other members may provide some input.
