    I want to be the first to post here!

    late-model tractor working. I have an older
    model, a '42 ford, unburdened with all the latest safety
    features.

    You paid much less than I would have guessed on a
    $381K trade. That's just 6/100th of one percent. Not
    likely to drag down your overall return very much. You
    can probably skip the spreadsheet I suggested <shy
    grin>. Last time I traded with a full-service broker I
    paid $320 on a $20300 trade. <another dumber
    grin>

    Having said that, the difference between $223 and $5
    buys a lot of tractor parts...

    I had a great
    book once, "The Cheapskates Handbook". Best work I
    ever read on the subject.
