Market Value of a Piano Roll Collection
By Duaine Hechler

This is my take on the value of _my_ roll collection.  Personally,
I am not interested in the value of my rolls as they exist.  My take
is, how much can I make on the _recut_ version of the rolls -- nearly
800 regular rolls and a few very rare ones, e.g., demo, instructional,
tester, etc. rolls.

P.S.: In reality, I would like to buy as many as I can and store
them as masters and start selling them as recuts.  Too bad, too,
I just got offered a lot of 100 of the rare Picturoll rolls.

P.S.2: I think it would be cool to start a "new-old" QRS type of
company that sells nothing but recuts of "old"; "rare", etc rolls.
(Any takers to join forces with me?)
