    I liked the idea of an ad in a magazine for older, frugal, people
    (Yankee Magazine) and offering $100 if the device was in usable
    condition.  He paid $75 to run his ad in Yankee and bought several
    sextants over the next 12 months from that one ad.  He claims all he
    bought were worth more than $100.  He picked a non-boating magazine and
    many respondents had no idea what the things were.
    
    Do you have the Second Edition?
