You STILL don't get this trust and mutual respect thing, do you Allen?

Do you think I roasted you about such a statement OUT OF SELF INTEREST??? 
really?  What did I have to gain out of that?

I've been ripped off in the past, but I'd much sooner that happen once in a 
while than allowing myself turned into a defensive cynic who trusts no-one.

As a number have said, it's extremely hard to price stuff these days.  It 
all depends on the audience and who you are.  List your stuff on ebay and it 
will go for what it's worth at that point in time.  If you want to list as 
BIN at the prices you've indicated then go ahead.  You might strike lucky.

Goodbye, good luck and please close the door when you leave so as to keep 
the squirrels and field mice out.
