I know he'd like to be able to say without any doubt they're working, and this is probably why it took so long for them to come for sale... but it's a fairly big collection and getting each one from storage and testing would be inconvenient and time consuming, and I suspect a decision has been reached as to whether that's realistically going to happen.
