Not nearly as good a deal as my $50 including manuals and shipping HP 3457A...  you gotta love sellers that don't check the fuse...

Also one should be very wary of new-in-box vintage equipment.  It tends to have a much greater failure rate than used equipment!  The major culprit is bad electrolytic capacitors.  Electrolytic caps that had never really been powered up and that sat unused for ages tend to fail much more often than caps that had been powered up for a reasonable amount of time early in their life (even if they then sat unused for extended periods).

Lucky me, I bought an HP3455A new still in the box for $300!
