I think Straight 8's are nearly  to the point that other systems which 
have published tracking  inventories.  There are very few, this one looks 
complete, or near  complete.

That said I'd figure though some of the higher prices such as  the 
current PDP8/I and GT40 are setting for want of bids, they aren't that  
far from what you have to pay to get said systems on demand. This one  
may go for around the opportunistic price, and be lower, but $10 to $12k  
isn't going to be  surprising.
