Throwing this out there...

I really hoped to keep this mirror until I died.  It has a meaningful personal backstory.  

Terry refigured this 17.5" pryex Coulter mirror for me back in 2015.  Interferometry pegs it at 0.97 Strehl, my eyeball saw my best views of Mars ever through it two oppositions ago.  Haven't used it much since the refigure/recoat and not since the Mars opp at Terry's place two years ago.  The coating is still excellent.

Terry says it has a very good anneal and he was very pleased with his work with it.  

28.6 lbs.

I'll ship CONUS.  I'll get some pix of the mirror up soon, but here's the interferometry report (I scribbled on it and will provide an untainted original .jpg and original hardcopy with the mirror (it seems to me that downloads of interferometry reports COULD be used for fraudulent purposes, so I'll keep the pristine copy not published widely).

Holler if you're seriously interested.
