What I'd suggest is putting a description of what you have up on the list,
and see if people are interested in it. I'm sure there's a fair number of
people that'd be interested in large chunks of your collect, and might
even be willing to drive to where you are, if they know. I know I'd
probably be game if you were within a 6-8 hour drive.
