THIS IS A HARD TO FIND 1961 GOTTLIEB FLIPPER FAIR PINBALL MACHINE. IN WORKING CONDITION INCLUDING THE BACKGLASS ANIMATION OF THE CLOWN FLIPPING THE BALL FROM SIDE TO SIDE AS EXTRA BALLS ARE AWARDED. IT AWARDS EXTRA BALLS AS IT SHOULD AT 2,000 AND 3,000 POINTS (ADJUSTABLE), WHEN YOU CLEAR NUMBERS 1 THROUGH 4, AND WHEN YOU HIT THE LIT EXTRA BALL CENTER TARGET. THE TILT WORKS PROPERLY WITH A BALL IN PLAY PLUS ONE ADDITIONAL BALL PENALTY. DOES NOT TAKE COINS AND STARTS BY PUSHING THE COIN RETURN BUTTON. THERE IS NO COIN MECHANISMS BUT IT COULD BE PUT BACK TO COIN OPERATION IF YOU ADD A COIN ADAPTER. ALL LIGHTS FUNCTION AND ALL THE PLAYFIELD RUBBER WAS RENEWED. THE BUMPERS, KICKERS AND FLIPPERS ARE ALL PROPER STRENGTH FOR A 1961 GAME. THE PLASTICS ARE FLAT AND ONLY HAVE A FEW SCRAPES WHERE THERE IS SOME MINOR PAINT LOSS: LOWER RIGHT ONE HAS A PENCIL ERASER SIZE SPOT UNDER THE RED BALOON, THE UPPER RIGHT HAS A SMALL SCRAPE SPOT AND THE UPPER LEFT HAS A SPOT NEAR THE TOP SCREW. NO PAINT LOSS NOTICED ON THE LOWER LEFT ONE. IN GENERAL, THE PLASTICS PROBABLY HAVE AT LEAST 98% OF THE ORIGINAL PAINT AND GRAPHICS. THIS IS ONE OF THE 5 GOTTLIEB MACHINES IN THE FLIPPER SERIES (FLIPPER, FLIPPER COWBOY, FLIPPER FAIR, FLIPPER CLOWN AND FLIPPER PARADE). PINBALL PRICE GUIDE (2018 VERSION). SO FEW OF THIS SERIES SELL THAT IT IS NOT LISTED AT ALL IN THE CURRENT BOSTON PINBALL PRICE GUIDE. THE INSTRUCTION CARD LOOKS NICE BUT IS NOT AN ORIGINAL. THE PLAYFIELD IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION FOR A 1961 GAME. THE ACTIVE BUMPER CAPS DO HAVE PAINT FADING ON THE LETTERING BUT NONE ARE BROKEN. THE STATIC BUMPERS HAVE BURN MARKS FROM TOO HOT BULBS. PBR SELLS REPLACEMENTS IF YOU END UP HATING THEM. THE BIGGEST DRAWBACK IS THE BACKGLASS. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME SIGNIFICANT TOUCHUPS, MAINLY AT THE TOP, AND SOME TAPING TO IT (INSTEAD OF THE USUAL TRIPLE THICK), SEE THE PHOTO OF THE BACK SIDE OF IT. SHAY AND BACKGLASS RESTORATIONS MAKE NEW BACKGLASSES FOR THIS GAME IF YOU HATE IT AS IT IS. THE BACK DOOR IS NOT ORIGINAL AND IS HAND MADE BY A PREVIOUS OWNER BUT IT WORKS AND HAS A KEYED LOCK. SEE THE PHOTO OF IT. PBR HAS NEW REPRODUCTIONS AS WELL BUT THEY ARE MORE EXPENSIVE. I WOULD LEAVE THIS ALONE SINCE IT IS NOT VISIBLE AND IT DOES THE JOB OF KEEPING DUST OUT AND OF MUTING NOISE. THE LEGS ARE OK BUT DO HAVE SOME SURFACE RUSTING SPOTS (NORMALLY I STRIP RUSTED LEGS AND REPAINT THEM BUT THESE ARE NOT THAT BAD AND I THINK REFINISHING THEM WOULD DETRACT FROM THE VALUE OF THE GAME). IT IS A NICE GAME BUT IT JUST DOESN’T FIT IN WITH MY LIGHTBULB SCORING WOODRAILS (NONE OF WHICH ARE FOR SALE) SO I DO NOT PLAN TO KEEP IT. I PUT UP A Y. VIDEO OF THIS EXACT GAME IN PLAY, SEARCH FLIPPER FAIR 2020 (SORRY ABOUT THE DOGS BARKING AT THE BEGINNING BUT THEY HATE THE UPS GUY). THE VIDEO DOCUMENTS THAT ALL THE BELLS WORK, ALL THE LIGHTS WORK, THE FLIPPERS WORK AS THEY SHOULD, THE BUMPERS ARE GOOD, AND IN THIS PLAYED GAME EXTRA BALLS ARE AWARDED VIA THE 1-4 NOTE THAT ONCE YOU MAKE THE 1-4 THE FIRST TIME, ONLY TWO NUMBERS RELIGHT, EITHER THE 1&3 OR THE 2&4 (DEPENDS WHICH SIDE THE 10 POINT LIGHT FOR THE KICKERS IS ON) SO IT IS EASIER TO GET A SECOND OR THIRD EXTRA BALL THIS WAY, THROUGH 2,000 POINTS OF SCORE AND FROM HITTING THE TARGET WITH THE LIGHTS PAIRED. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE THE CLOWN TOSS THE BALL WITH EACH EXTRA BALL EARNED. THE VIDEO WAS TAKEN WITH THE BACK DOOR OFF AND THE TOP GLASS OFF TO ENHANCE THE SOUNDS. VIRGINIA SUBURBS AND I CAN HELP WITH LOADING. AS WITH ALL EM GAMES, EXPECT IT TO NEED ADJUSTMENTS AFTER MOVING IT, PARTICULARLY WITH THE LIGHT BULBS. I WILL INCLUDE A PACKAGE OF 10 EIKO #47 BULBS WITH IT. The item “GOTTLIEB FLIPPER FAIR PINBALL MACHINE 1961 WORKING” is in sale since Monday, August 17, 2020.
