Hi all,

I need to clean out my tube box with tubes I will never use.  As before, these were bought years ago mostly from Fred Schmidt, N4TT (Typetronics).  I have had them for enough years some of the boxes fell apart and I put them in other containers.

Preference will be given to anyone who takes the lot followed by those who take the greatest number of tubes.  Shipping will be by USPS flat rate box when possible.  If the number exceeds the flat rate box I will purchase a box from the P O and send it by weight which will approximate the flat rate box.
