    any thoughts on what a pretty decent, fully working williams fire is worth. I have some trade offers on my HH, but not sure how accurate pinside prices are, lol. Thanks.

    This guy has offered the fire, fully working, some minor wear, and 200 cash for my Haunted House, or A nice Jungle Lord, red cab edition, and 500 cash, in both cases he will take care of transport. Even converted to Canadian dollars, pinside prices seem low to me?. I am trying to sell HH to fund another purchase, so any trade would have to be sold. Was hoping to get a 50/50 split on trade in and cash, but thats not happening, so most likely any trade will have to be relisted immediately. ugghhh.

    Pinside prices are based mostly on US pin sales. Pins are always cheaper south of the border!

    I feel the trade offer is not great, even with shipping.
    Looking at the 2018 Mr.Pinball Price Guide values - yes, I know this is only a guide:
    for fully working machines, new rubber rings and no visible wear on PF & BG:
    - Fire: $1750 USD
    - JL, red cab: $1025 USD
    - HH: $2675 USD

    You can also look at bostonpinball.biz (eBay sales) to compare machines' values as well.

    Good luck!
    -Sylvain.
