Hi there Doug and welcome. A fine looking Oliver Whales machine you have there. In the US these British machines will always be a little tougher to sell than here, but many come up at auctions and eBay etc....looks a nice machine and in the U.K. would sell for around £400 to £550 at a guess, which is around $700...

Treefrog,
Thank you for the quick reply. I have a person who wants to give me $200 for it. Sounds like I need to get an extra $100 to $150 to give that person a decent whole sale price. I am assuming your 400 to 550 pounds would be a retail price. Is that correct?
Thank you again
Dougev

For that money it would be worth selling to a U.K. buyer !OMFG!

There are US and Canadian members on this site who would jump at that price. Key is the machine is not a wreck, but very tidy. In my opinion you should be getting at least $500+

Treefrog,
Thank you again for the information. I was going to sell it for $200 and the buyer was going to pay shipping to the New England area, but based on your excellent input, I will see if I can get $400 for it with him paying shipping. I would be happy with that.
Pretty late at night for you, isn't it???
Regards,
Dougev

Treefrog,
The person who was interested in my Win a Crunch for $200 didn't like the idea that I was suggesting that I would like $350 for the game and he decided he didn't want it.
I do not need to sell it but if you know of anyone who might be interested, would you please give me a few leads?
I watched the blue moon also, but at a more reasonable time in the night.
Regards,
dougev

As mentioned before, if only it were in the U.K. as it would be snapped up for between £350 and £550......

There are a couple of Allwin collectors on your side of the pond, whether they are interested, I don’t know, but are on this site so will see the post. I did ship a machine from the US a few years ago and managed to get it shipped for $100. But it missed customs charges and was slightly smaller.....I am sure if it could be shipped for $500 someone here would probably have a go, so worth checking if you can get a good deal on shipping based of size. If you do, can advertise on this site, I reckon someone would buy, would even consider myself.

It just seems criminal to sell for $200 :shock:

very nice looking machine and backflash looks to be extremely good as well, I have no doubt that it would be worth at least £350 - £550 over here.

I see you have a NCR dougev, what model is it?
