I saw that one also. looks like a slightly reworked by "Buckley" type machine. Put the Cherries back on.... I would say the price is correct from a dealer stand point. If it was mine & I wanted to move it, price around $2,300.00 / $2,500.00, of course that depends on what I had into it also.

Thanks for weighing in on that. The payout issue is a bit troubling. Maybe someone greased the payout slides real good.
Then there's this one:

I've looked at it many times, but the price puts me off as well as the necessity of shipping. There could probably be a sub forum dedicated to those horror stories.

Best,

Well, the North Carolina machine is a beaut, by that price is totally unrealistic. Thinking it's an "I really don't want to sell it" price.
Just saw this one, for a grand less -- looks just as nice, too:

Wow! $4,895.00 for a HighTop? Brand new, out-of-the-crate, doesn't deserve that!
Yeah, I know it's a fifty-center, but 'give me a break'! It's restored, but the reel strips
don't even line up. That knocks off a few bucks right there! Like a couple of grand.

Yep , seen both on them. Believe both been relisted a few times (?).
Even some dealers from time to time have "don't want to sell prices" on odd ball machines. E-bay is very terrible .....
Let me ref-raze that , some of the Sellers are terrible On e-bay. you have any item you wish to sell AND you don't bother to see if others of the same are up for sale & what prices those owners want ? not to bright.
So you have a shinny green glass marble & you want $50.00 for it. well ,there's 50 others up for sale currently & everyone else wants $2.00 each..... just wasting everyone's time , specially their own.

"The reel strips don't line up". Now I hadn't noticed that. What I did notice was the machine in Arkansas is missing the jackpot mech. Was thinking of making a lowball offer on the N.C. machine...maybe. But then, what if they accept it !
