Title: I have Graphite From CP-1 First Nuclear Reactor
Post by: warwagon on Aug 26, 2020, 07:05
My Girlfriend found this and was going to throw it away, so I thought I would take it. From just my quick Google search it appears to be more on the rare side. Just wondering how much it may be worth.

She got it from her sister I have no idea where her sister got it her sister does a lot of auctions so it may have been included in a box of stuff she got at a house auction.

needs provenance,....

without provenance - whatever you can get

with provenance - well, if I didn't like spending money on cars or boats or grandchildren a bit more than I like spending it on keepsakes I'd give you 500 dollars just to put it up on my office shelf (I have the Y, the A, the E, and the C off an old long gone turbine building on the side of my shed), I would be willing to postulate there are a few folks with Argonne roots or some other connected history who might pay more, the trick is getting the word out to those select few persons,...

as to CP-1 original folks?!?! - not likely they're still above ground,....

warwagon, take the $500! I am thinking that's the best offer you'll hear.
