    And you save $188.92. What a deal!

    Get ready to take some time off. Might take a while to clear that ball jam. Especially if he ships it like that.

    wHAT A COOL CELL! I was trying to see if it was a custom or original design. I only see 2 staples in the green part at the bottom, otherwise all screws. So, I thought the GOLD STANDARD woul be if the "staples" that hold the ball track on, look original. I can't see any! I can't see any evidence of a cell replacement...but, the cell is "not characteristic" of vintage machines. But then again...it is a Mizuho!
    I like it! Just crazy enough to really get your attention...without being full blown custom artwork that don't look right on a vintage machine. NOT worth $510 though! Even if perfect with original, unusual cell...I couldn't do it!
    I do like it...even if a custom cell.

    Not sure why they stick with such a high price. Maybe they paid WAY too much for it...and trying to recoup some of their loss.
    The machine looks nice. All covers on back intact (that alone makes it rare!) I'm not sure why there is a brass plate at the bottom. The bottom of the back looks normal, but maybe some damage to the formica on front? I don't think I ever seen one with one there. It is a Mizuho...a less common brand, but that won't justify the price...even with the cool cell.

    I'm wondering if it's being sold by someone who buys or processes estates. Looking at the items for sale, and feedback, they do a lot of business.

    In the description of the item it says
    "I do not know how to test it, so it is being sold as is, but it came from the home of a collector who restored them"

    For whatever that is worth.

    If it's from an estate, where are the others, since he restored them, you'd think there would be more. And he obviously didn't restore this one

    I guess they didn't do any research to see what these things go for. Anybody make an offer?

    I saw that one yesterday, I thought it looked like either it was taking a nap or was the victim of a hit!! It may have an $820 start, but it's got free shipping and "It has custom all around it."
