Don't know if this is something someone may be interested in but I was browsing my local CL and ran across a '75 Questar Duplex Cervit Broad-Band. I'm not into Questars but thought that someone may want to take a look. You can find it here: http://fortcollins.c...3416672068.html

If this isn't allowed please feel free to delete it. I'm not the one selling it but know they are specialty scopes and was surprised to find one listed on CL.

Considering a new one is $5550, I doubt he'll get any takers.

The same Q is on eBay with an starting bid of $3500 (no takers, yet). With all the extras it would probably be in the high $2000s. The CL listing might be a copy of the eBay listing and I would not trust it until I touched it. The eBay listing at least has a PayPal safety.

Luck, Bill

That was my thought as well.

Sorry guys. I had no idea what these go for. Didn't know if it was a deal or not - guess not. :D

We have an ongoing thread on Classics for Ebay/Craigslist finds of a classic nature.
