That sounds like a very interesting collection. I am definitely

But, unfortunately I'm not in a position to take on such a purchase
($500+$750) myself at this time. Especially after unexpectedly spending
nearly that much on the HVAC this week. :-(

I'll take your word for that. My uninformed opinion is that the amount
of gold in most electronics is not worth the effort. I'm sure that used
