I agree that the lot needs to be split up.
Ideally it can be bought by someone in the
collecting or museum community who can do
this in an appropriate manner. I suspect
there would be no problem finding takers
for the 8/I's, for example, sold individually.
I know of at least one individual who would be
interested in one, right here in this very room. ;)

Realistically, museums are always tight on space,
and even if their charter allows them to buy
artifacts in the first place (rather than accepting
donations only), there is way too much duplication
in this lot.

David: Yes, there is a special place in hell
for folks who turn working core planes into "art"...
