The asking price reflects either unreasonable aspiration or dementia -
thanks for the laughs!
I have picked up full-height cases of that form factor at swap meets,
hamfests, etc. over the years. However, since "recycle" mania has hit,
they are admittedly getting difficult to come by.
There's a special place in Hell for misguided Green recyclying
initiatives that crush vintage equipment and ship it to China. I made one
or two attempts at hanging around one of the local crush-fests in hopes of
picking the pile. Was chased off in no uncertain terms. Do not kid
yourselves, these are money-making ventures for someone!
