Hello All,

I have some boxes of mystery, still sealed from Bell Helicopter as picked up from an estate lot.  I opened one and inside was a nicely packed T-366 transmitter.  The first part of the mystery is what is actually inside the remaining boxes, but I would assume they all the same.  If I recall correctly, the total count is around a dozen.

The body from the box I opened is in good shape, no dents or major scrapes, paint looks touched up here and there.  All four 6AQ5 tubes are there but there are no crystals.  The paperwork wired to the top cover plate says it was rejected for 'Low, not up to spec output'.  The top pieces of the paperwork are gone and only the last page with the carbon copy writing is present.  Not sure if this has yet to be fixed or if it has been fixed and the paperwork is a record of why it was rejected.  This is the second part of the mystery.

Anyone want one, two, or more?  Since the packing is so good, my preference is to just put the addresses right on the outside of the boxes and mail them via USPS Parcel Select.  My guess is they weigh about 6 pounds and the outside box measures 8 x 6.5 x 6.5.  They would ship from Zip Code 55076.  

For some reason I cannot see find Parcel Select price on the USPS website when calculating shipping  from 55076 to 90005.  I could remove the mystery item from the mystery box and ship via Medium Flat Rate Box as it would fit inside quite nicely.  I believe 2 of them would fit in one Medium Flat Rate Box.

Is $15 each reasonable?  

Thanks for your consideration.

Best Regards,
