Unfortunately, the auction site immediately removes closed lots from their webpage so no idea what it sold for, or if it went to a scrapper. I suspect it was billed as 'cabinets of aviation equipment'. Being 3 hours away I can't exactly run over there and pin a note on it.

Thanks for taking the pictures!  Now that I can see a clear picture of 
the front panel on those SEL/Gould machines, I *really* wish I'd bid on 

Thanks for getting a picture of the TI-980 -- do you recall if photo 
IMG_5542 is from the same rack as the TI?  I'm curious what was behind 
that door on the top and I can't wait until it gets here to find out :).

I hope that most of this stuff will end up in the hands of people who 
won't shred it for gold content, but...
