Question
Captain America
Captain America  
I have a combo arcade game of Captain America and Magic sword. I have considered selling it but have no price comparison. I have been told that it is very rare. Could someone please tell me what it is listed for? I can not find it anywhere online. Serial Number 407625 and model number 351xx.
Thank You..

Answer
Hi Dena,

Unfortunately, this machine is not rare. It's what's called a conversion, which means it used to be one game and was changed into another. In this case, it appears that the cabinet used to house a Centipede but was converted in the mid-80's. It likely has a switch in it that lets you run one of two games.

On the retail market, this machine is worth about $150, mostly for the two games that are inside of it. If you can get $200, you're making out like a bandit.

Sorry that I didn't have better news for you!

Expertise

I can answer questions regarding coin-operated arcade game questions down to the logic board. Error codes, erratic operation, dead boards, I can help with them all. I can help with video monitors on a very limited and basic level only.

Experience

I have spent nearly 20 years as an avid arcade collector, and spent nearly 10 of those years as the lead tech for a large arcade operator, doing work for manufacturers and other coin-operated amusement companies around the globe. I maintain a good sized collection of arcade games, as well as a large inventory of spare parts for a wide range of arcade machines.
