While traveling around New Zealand with the fam I came across a rather ambiguous listing on Marketplace - “Early radio parts in box”. These sounded perfect for my Ray-Gun builds. Scrolling through the couple pics I immediately noticed one particular dial that made purchasing the entire lot worthwhile, the illusive Fifth Element Grenade Dial. When I picked up the lot I was pleasantly surprised to be handed 2 large suitcases, plus the cardboard box full of parts! Upon further inspection I discovered a truck load of vintage goodies...

The purpose of this post is to discover what other “found parts” are hiding here, if any. The previous owner was a radio repairman from England so most of these parts are NOS from the U.K.

The items I see of interest are the Nixie tubes you have there, handle them with care, they could be worth some money depending their part number, ether google the number or check ebay. Even if they are not that rare you could build a Nixie tube clock out them.

Might have a match for the Scout Trooper blaster grip greeblie among those transistors.
The rectangular push button bezels could be a match for Imperial rank bars. Also round ones for rebels.

Double that and that's what we took out of my grandpa's house when he sold it. He was into HAM radio so he had a TON of stuff. Of course none of it turned out to be Star Wars related unfortunately.
