As usual I always have my eyes out for the unusual. Low and behold I come across this pinball machine. It's a 1965 Gottlieb " Kings and Queens" electromagnetic machine. It was made the 1 year and there were 2875 confirmed units produced. I know absolutely nothing about these but love pinball. I hope to get her going and fully operating. What I've read, it happens to be one of the top 10 most sought after machines of the era. Huh! It was almost right in my backyard. I got this little bit of information from googling. I'm hoping to get in touch with someone who can look at it in person.

I pulled this from a mini barn where it had been used as a table for 10+ years. It had been covered the entire time so the finish and glass are all good. There is no power cord so I'll have to add that. I have no intentions on selling so never hunted for a value. It's gonna look neat in the shop all lit up next to my Pepsi machine.

All the boards and wires seem intact. No mice issues seen at first glance. I need to research this more before adding power.

Yes clean and test everything before adding power. There was a reason the cord was removed years ago. I like that it was in your backyard. Some of my favorite toys were found nearby too. Good Luck, Rick

Very neat. My uncle had(may still have. Haven't been to his house in 10 years or better) a pinball machine, a space invaders arcade game and a bar style pay pool table.

He had them hooked up and charged .25 cents a game. He used that money to keep the bar stocked.

He was a big drinker and partier 25 years ago and always had a basement full of people Friday and Saturday night
