Amiga disk collection (over 1500 disks) for sale

I have a collection of about 15 boxes full of Amiga disks which I once bought together with an Amiga hardware lot.
Each box contains about 100 disks (I think? I will have to check when I visit my storage room next time )

Since I am more a hardware collector and not so much a software preservator (TOSEC guy, etc.), I am not interested in keeping those disk any longer, so I was going to sell them on Ebay etc., for 20,- Euro for each box.

However, I know there are a lot of software/crack/versions collectors around here, who do a great job.
So, I would like to offer the boxes here for 15,- each box before I sell them elsewhere, if anyone is interested in them?

I have to mention that the disks don't seem to be in great shape? Only tried a few and some gave an ugly noise when spinning....
I had them in dry condition storage, but I guess they might have been in poor storage before I got them?
So I think it needs someone who got a bit of experience with transferring/cleaning disks etc. ?

If anyone is interested in the lot, please let me know.
Thanks

if the disks are any good, i would like to image them!

i dont need disks tho (i have about 10000 at home atm), so you might sell them after i imaged them.

however, i am willing to pay a lending fee
so if it is 1500 disks as you say, i could image them probably on a weekend fri-sun

(since we are both in Vienna, that should be possible)

If they are in bad shape, not interested in buying them as it may means that they are unusable for most of them.
If you may consider giving them for free I can consider to take some time in trying to image them.
PM me.

Cleaning moldy disks is possible but a ton of work. You should not be selling this, because if anyone wants to go through the, they'll have to spend a lot of man hours cleaning each disk one by one to be able to read them.
