Hi All:

I finally had time to straighten my book shelf and have found a large number of code books, code hand books and other code related items taking up needed shelving. I have kept these books for years thinking I may need them for reference but I have found that is not the case. I don't know if I should get rid of them or store them away.

I would like to ask,what do you guys do with your out dated code books?

Thanks
Joe

If they're old enough, you can get guys here to buy 'em as collectibles.

You wouldn't happen to have a '96, would you? Our city uses that as it's adopted version, and I'd love a spare for the truck.

If you have any NEC books prior to 1923 I would appreciate the opportunity to bid on them. Creighton

Joe,

I know that Joe Tedesco is always interested in old code books. Why don't you contact him? He can tell you what they are worth.
