    I have only seen that feature only once in over 40 years and someone is going to get a sweet deal who live in the Washington State area.

    Cool center feature, too bad it doesn't have the moving tulips at that point.

    Looks like they are willing to ship (internationally !) but at $112.93 kinda steep. That is a very cool and unique center feature! Iíd definitely scoop it up if I were a local though.

    Weird how I just bought an even older Misono single shot last weekend locally now this pops up! I think this one is early 60ís (not 70ís as the ad states) Because it has a plastic pocket and plastic on the ball return area while my 57í model is all metal or chrome in those areas. Also it has a light; which my older one is 100% mechanical with no electrics.

    These single shots are more fun than I expected with their much slower gameplay, you have to be much more patient and deliberate with your shooting. And thereís no bumper so your ball will spin all the way around if you donít aim well and fire the ball too hard. Getting a ball in the top pocket is quite a treat!

    Bidding war continues, now itís up to $100. Same price I recently paid for an older 57í Misono in good shape with a less interesting circular center feature. How high will it go??

    I suppose, I was hoping it would sell for crazy eBay prices like this one to boost the resale value of the one I bought last week!

    Agreed...untill you factor in $112 shipping. I bailed out at $100. I was having a hard time justifying a $212 pachinko machine! I watched it end on my phone at work. My final bid (not winning) stayed until the final 10 seconds.

    That one for $3000 one is missing parts! Half of the ball dump track is missing, as well as the seesaw cover and parts for the "jackpot reserve chamber". It looks like it probably would function. And the lights are added. OK...my rant is done.
