    Alex, one "WILD T2 T-2 THEODOLITE WITH TRIBRACH NICE CONDITION  Item  
    number: 270174429768"  went last month or so for:
    
    Winning bid:    US $367.67  
    Ended:  Oct-15-07 13:08:47 PDT
    Shipping costs: US $29.00
    US Postal Service Parcel Post�
    Service to United States
    Ships to:   United States
    Item location:  Wasilla, Alaska, United States
    
    It really looked unused.  Main problem was that I couldn't get my bid  
    through because my home address is in Canada (the auction was limited to  
    the USA) or the selling price would have been higher to reach my limit.  I  
    was willing to live with mils; the US version with 6400mils to the  
    circle.  Graduations of 0.002mil are a close enough equivalent of one  
    second of arc.
    
    Did you run into the Soviet version of the mil, at 6000mils to the circle?
