I sold a 10" Admiral wooden console with the stipulation that I would not ship it; the buyer asked me to drop it off to the nearest UPS Store. Weeks past...he never paid for it & they wanted it gone, could I come & pick it up, no charge? It was nicely packed, at least on the outside, with no signs of trauma. As I loaded it in the van I could hear something rattling around inside. I soon discovered they had necked the crt just in packing it.

Well if shipping is a sin then I guess anyone around me could just pick it up instead.

At your young collecting age you should place that in your CRT vault and save it for a rainy day.

Quite true. I've got two spares, one strong and one decentish, and one set that is starting to need one....It would take a stupid big amount of money to make me think of selling either. If you use your sets a lot, then one day you'll need it. The more roundy colors you have the more spares become worth keeping.

If yes , sure I can see selling the surplus one . But ! If you haven't yet put the NOS tube in and actually seen it work , you could be shooting yourself in the foot big time if the NOS tube turns out to have some unseen defect or other .

Remember , NOS or new anything else , there ARE a certain percentage of all products that show up brand new , factory defective , and unfit for service . Selling the known working tube before verifying the new one works perfectly is taunting the CRT Gods in ways they shouldn't be goaded .....
Well , that makes three of us with cautionary tales of not selling off a somewhat rare/valuable tube .....

Regarding CRT shipping, I have received 21FJP22/21FBP22s from Texas and Ohio, and shipped a 16GP4 to Washington state and a 10BP4 to New York, and all arrived safely. What did they have in common?

They were all shipped by Greyhound Bus.
