Since you expect your version of a "fair to you" price for unknown used 
tubes to be 1/2 of NOS RETAIL (as stated in an email) you might as well put 
them back in the attic.

To expect a buyer to have to do your testing and chance damaging HIS 
equipment and still have to pay an outlandish price isnt fair to him.

The purpose of this forum is hams helping hams, not someone joining strictly 
to troll for values so they can be maximized on Fleabay.
