|Need 15C advice.|

After months of reading about the greatness of the 15C, I decided to spend $400 and get a neat new 15C from the local ebay broker.
The calc arrived in perfect condition. No a scratch or blemish anywhere to be found. No dust under the lens. Even the rubber feet look unused. It practically defines "museum" quality, and because of that I put it in a plastic zip loc bag, and have only calculated maybe 10 things on it, without taking the bag off.
I must have some sort of disease.
Anyway, the question for the group is... should I sell it for the 250-350 that it is really worth (I can't imagine ANYONE would be dumb like me and pay $400). Or keep if in my drawer for the next ten-twenty years and hope that the price for “Mint Condition” will at the very least recover my "investment".
I would like to use it, but it is just too darn sexy. At the very, very least, I know think I have a small understanding of what it must have been like when they first came out. Great form factor/great keys.
Pinch yourself, I am crazed... I will keep it, my preciousssss…
