Earlier this year, a local small village upgraded their town hall
auditorium seating and recouped thousands of dollars selling the chair
shells on eBay. I was surprised at what a 50-year-old hunk of
fiberglass sells for now.

I have some steel-backed tiles that were newish in 1982 and from the
weight, they would be incredibly expensive to send to Oz.
More recent tiles I've seen are aluminum-backed and weigh far less,
but they aren't period-correct for the late 60s.
