So, what would you be willing to pay for an original CS in the crate? The $250 might just about cover the cost of the crate...

That's way too high.  I wouldn't pay $250 for all 6, delivered.  (It's still April 1st here).

I'm not afraid to take anything apart.
I am sometimes afraid I'm not going to get it back together.

Probably about 8 bux.

Would be interesting to know what the roids go for now in India to the locals.
Probably about 5M  RP which is still about 8 bux US.  :0)

What was the prevailing wage on that date? What was the cost of living? What was the value of the Dollar?

All things being equal I suppose they should be worth somewhere around $5,000 if they were still in production from Britain today. Scarcity factor??? - Probably another $5,000 to $10,000 worth of antiquity.
