I've made the seller offers before, usually takes them. IMake an offer of a
$100 with a note something like "Cesium Tube is missing, all the value is
in the tube, making offer for spare parts"

They are surplus guys have no idea what the thing is. They have someone
suggesting the T&M vaule based on model number only.

Can't loose
