Be prepared for shock. pennies on the dollar is the going rate these days.

CHeck on ebay for an idea, break the equipment up into individual pieces, as it is rare for someone to buy this whole package.
People with darkrooms may be looking for pieces here and there.

The school where i teach get equipment donated all the time, and recently I sold a beseler 45 with lens in board, timer , negative carrier and a set of filters for $125, and threw in a few odds and ends. This was to a student so it was a bit easier.
^^ Good advice from Ann.

You might also post this question and list over at APUG, which is a forum dedicated to analog users, and not only get some price suggestions, but offers. :)
I'll take it all for $20! :mrgreen:
