I'd value something like a DEC head / track "drum" more than this. That 
said, those are going for maybe 750 or so.  If Jack Ruben is still 
watching, he sold one, may recall the value.

If you don't find some historical reason for this item for the machine's 
value or notoriety it will probably come in no more than what the 
branded, semi useful DEC or other such drum would.  The DEC ones are 
typically not useful, but may have useful circuitry and is somewhat more 

I've got both a drum and a head / track myself, and would have to 
research this issue myself.

If a museum has one of the machines, then they may be able or interested 
in paying for the article as well.
