That's why I would much rather trade  radio stuff for other radio stuff, 
rather than to try to sell for cash.  Inevitably, whenever I ask enough $$ 
to make a sale worth my while, someone thinks I am asking too much and 
ripping the other person off.  All dollar(ette)s are exactly the same, 
steadily lose buying power every day that passes, and will probably be gone 
without a trace within weeks, if not days.  But if I can trade what I think 
is a nice piece in exchange for a different piece that someone else thinks 
is nice, and both of us are happy and we each have a unique item that we may 
keep for years.
