It seems that there is sufficient interest in individual ranks and other parts to make me take another look. If I can put together enough sales to meet my financial objective I'll = sell individual parts.   I have tried but failed to accurately keep track of all those who emailed = me about this inventory. Therefore, I ask those who are interested in individual pieces to write me again (except for LD, KZ, RN, and BG).   Please list the items you are interested in, the condition that you = expect, and the amount that you would consider paying if the items meet your inspection. The sale is still mostly "you pick up" (except I'm looking = into LDs request).   For your convenience I have attached an inventory description. I will = take more pictures this week and send to those who inquire.   Thank you for your continuing interest in my inventory.
