Figured I'd clarify my position after some email discussions:
I haven’t really given any thought to pricing yet - I’m out of town right now so at this point I’m just asking for expressions of interest, and we can worry about how to set price later, when stuff actually changes hands. In general, I’d like to get back what I paid for them, with perhaps a little consideration for actual market value on top. I’m not too worried about bidding wars or anything like that, since I doubt there’ll be enough interest to have multiple people interested in the same items.
I wouldn’t make a very good used car salesman - I’m not looking to profit off anybody here. I honestly want to drink them all myself, and I bought them for that purpose, not as investments. I’m really tempted to throw them into my climate-controlled storage unit and chip away at them myself over the next few months, as I either wind down NL operations, or alternatively, keep NL operations going on a minimal basis until I revive things next summer/fall. The problem is, I’ve simply got too many unknowns in my life right now to know which way things are going to go. But, if folks like Steve, or Mike, or Norm, whom I know will appreciate them, want to take them off me for a fair price, well, that’s at least as appealing as packing them up and lugging them to the storage unit. And I’m absolutely not saying that to pressure y'all on price - if the move becomes permanent, the total cost of my cellar is a blip on the balance sheet.
Bottom line, I'm not offering deals here - but I might be offering a few opportunities that might otherwise be very hard to come by. Feel free to express interest on a without prejudice, non-binding basis. It might come down to a few of us sitting around a table and haggling over beer while drinking beer - and wouldn't that
