Default *'Nichol' calliope for sale, $105,000*

Steamboating colleagues:
The winter issue of 'PowerShips,' former titled SSHSA's venerable 'Steamboat Bill' carries on their classified pages the following ad with full color photo.

I apologize if a previous mention of this instrument appeared on I didn't have time to scroll through the postings to narrow it down. Are there any takers on the above offer? Well, what do I know?
