Agreed. It’s been dropping year on year with preference for later machines which are now some of the most sought after. Times are a changing. I wonder what we will be saying in another 20 years.... or sooner.

I fully expect at that point I'd be banging on my lid and shouting "Get me outta here, I demand a second opinion!"

You see this a lot in American pinball collecting too. Not many people want the 30s-60s games much any more and their prices have stagnated or dropped, whiles 80s-onward has been on fire.

I am sure there will always be a greater level of demand for machines that people can remember, but think about it, most people I have seen for example into jukeboxes were not around when they operated, same is with most machines. I remember no allwins, jukes, a few bandits, but collect them. There will always be an interest in rare old items as someone else will always come along.
