contemplating selling my VT52

I've been saving the VT52 I've owned for years (used it with a modem
back in the late 80s to dial into school) with the thought of paring it
up with a PDP-8/E, PDP-8/F, or PDP-8/M .... but I don't know that the
PDP-8 train will ever stop here. I've come close a couple of times, but
have either missed the train on a good deal, or not been in a position
to stomach the pricing some of them fetch.
So, I'm contemplating selling the VT-52. It has age typical wear, but
last time it was powered on, it was working. There was a touchy
connection that would act up once in a while requiring a tap on the side
to bring it back around (something in the video connection no doubt). I
never dug into it to resolve it 100%, as it didn't happen often, and a
'love tap' on the right side always brought it around.
I'd like to hang onto it, but it is big.
I'm entertaining offers which might sway my decision to keep/sell it.
I'm located close to the intersection of Sharon, Easton, and Stoughton,
I don't think shipping is an option, unless your willing to pay, and
take the risk on something like this being transported. If I can get a
big enough box, I can pack it well.... but I'd prefer not to do it due
to the risks involved.
Keep VT52 in the subject line of any e-mail you send so I can find it
easier. Sometimes I may only check mail here once a week, so if you are
inquiring and don't hear from me for a while, no fear, I'll get around
