This is the same as the first metal detector that I ever used for gold hunting back in 1960 When living in Korong vale age 16 Vic.
, Paid 10 shillings for it a a local Army Disposals Store. Found horse shoes, tin cans and other gold field bits and pieces.

6000 dollars to use as a movie prop. pale I think I would make a lookalike out of cardboard.
Still I guess it is worth whatever someone is prepared to pay for it.

I agree but wasn't going to say it directly in case he is on the forum. I know where batteries for that unit may possibly still  be obtained. If I recall correctly they are  67.5vdc, 45vdc and 1.5vdc.
If the tubes are stuffed then the buyer (if any) may be in a bit of bother although I have a hell of a lot of old radio valves here and Dads old cct and valve tester.
Also most of the capacitors will be cactus by now.
