This is an absolutely beautiful example of this stunning Classic Stern. Barely any wear on the playfield, even the inserts are almost perfect. Aside from a couple of tiny scratches on the back-glass, it is also near mint and unfaded. Even the cabinet is in great shape.
Beyond this however, this Meteor deviates from it’s original condition in some very significant ways “under the hood” if you will. The Black Label process it has undergone is described below, and in more detail here.
