not only rare and valuable, also dangerous.

CRTs, especially vintage ones without a tensioned rimband implosion protection, like the one in this set, are extremely dangerous items when they're no longer inside a cabinet with a safety glass in front of the screen, they contain a very high vacuum, the glass envelope has several TONS of air pressure attempting to crush it, it's quite unstable, and may implode given the least excuse, even releasing the mounting bolts may cause them to implode.

A CRT implosion is for all practical purposes an explosion, hundreds of glass shards and metal parts from the electronic gun assembly are expelled violently at projectile speeds,  like a small grenade, and this may result in serious and even lethal injuries.

Not a joke, people has died from CRT implosion, they should be handled only by trained personnel who know how to safely release the vacuum and dispose of them.
