I'm not, and I am probably one of the more active SGI collectors
on the list. I have my hands full with just the MIPS boxes (and
my budding attempts to develop a DEC/PDP collection)

BTW, this appears to be one of the earlier Motorola 680x0 based
(Pre-MIPS) SGIs. I _think_ it uses intel Multibus boards. If my
memory serves me, the early version of IRIX that runs on this
doesn't support X (but I might be wrong...)  There is a FAQ
floating around somewhere that describes these early beasts
(including the follow-on 3xxx series of pre-MIPS SGI boxes), and
you should probably try to latch onto a copy (which the FAQ's 
creator will happily send you, if you can find his email address.)
Try checking the deja archives of comp.sys.sgi.hardware...

BTW, I'm also relatively local to this item (Fredericksburg, VA)
I wonder how many of us are actually in the Washington D.C. area?

Good luck with your bid!
