Default What is a Hickok 533 worth?

I have a friend who found a Hickok 533 in really good shape in a house he is refurbishing. What is one worth? I checked a couple of tubes with it and I got meter movement. Thats the best I could do with no instruction manual. I feel that it is working properly though. Can anyone help me out here? I don't want to overpay for it.

Hi G,
A hickok 533 that was in excellent condition sold on line for $288.00.
Some hickok testers do demand a good amount of money.
As fdegrove said $100 to $140 would be good.
Depending on the condition.
There is one that needs to be restored on sale on ebay i think it is currently up to $16.00.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=48710

You can get the manual free on line in pdf form on the hickok tester data page

http://www.0wned.org/~hstraub/testerdata.htm

Now i know there is a 533 and a 533a but i myself do not know the difference between the two.


Hope this helps,
Thanks
joe
