    OMG! With all the talk about slide rules on this thread I decided to see what the market would bear as they say.
    So I googled slide rules and clicked on this sight:

    http://www.rose-vintage-instruments.com/newlook/selected.php?type=Slide%20Rules

    There was my old K+E Deci-Lon 5 and IT WAS GOING FOR $225!!
    I couldn't believe it; this was a very good slide rule, but it was also my first (H.S. senior / freshman college) slide rule.
    A good solid everyday student slide rule that went for I think $15 in the book store. Are people just waxing nostalgic?
