I think you have one of those cameras that you'd have to pay someone to take off your hands.

Seriously, these old things are hard as hell to sell. An eBay ad + shipping would cost you more than you'd get for the thing.

I doubt you'd even find that person! What's he/she gonna do with a broken camera?
Chuck it.

The Pentax F: 1.7 auto lens is probably worth $25 to $30. The camera is not worth the freight costs to ship it. Sell the lens and donate the camera for parts.

Just keep it. It can serve as a less orthodox home decoration, or a nostalgic reminder of previous times.

If "a nostalgic reminder of previous times" in your home is not in a frame on the wall, it's junk...
...OR it's valuable antiques of course!* * *

Hey, X! Maybe you can get a thousand bucks for that camera! Who knows?

I agree. Call junk by its proper name.
