That's a good question. Hopefully some ham got it and puts it to use.

There is a lot of old AM equipment languishing in barns and attics.
I expect a lot of it was hauled to the garbage, sad to say.

I once got a discarded Globe King 400 from a barn in Tennessee
back when I lived there. I think you just have to be in the right place at the right 
time.
