Large stash of flybacks in Florida

I have a friend who buys/sells audio tubes & equipment; he spends part of the year near me in MD, the rest down in Orlando. He called me today to let me know about his recent find: over 400 NOS Thordarson flybacks, plus some width controls & some flybacks from other brands. There's no inventory lists. He has no interest in shipping these (if he did I'd try to get them myself) but wants to find one person to take the whole lot at a price of $1 for each flyback. Depending on what's there, it might not be such a bad deal. If anyone is seriously interested, let me know & I'll put you in touch.

Could be a fair deal pending they are mostly late 40's though 60's, also the condition of storage over the years is a big if. I've had a few unfortunate experiences sourcing transformers from the humid southern states. If they haven't been in climate controlled storage I'd be very hesitant to purchase.

I’m interested, but only if they can be brought up here when he comes to visit you.

Trouble is, he doesn't have a practical way to bring them. He takes the auto train & only has a very small car.

I spoke with my friend again; I gave him a list of the more desirable flybacks. Bad news: they've been cherry-picked. No RCA 60's color Still, if anyone is interested...a buck a piece if you pick 'em up.
