Thanks for your extremely kind offer, Arnaud, but I can't accept it.
The Spanish postal service being what it is, it would mean a considerable risk of your valuable machine getting lost or getting damaged or both.
Besides, I do own a functional HP-10C, but it is a mint instance of it which now resides batteryless and carefully sealed in a teflon bag amid some silica gel bags, and I don't feel like taking it out of its peaceful sleep just to bang on it with many tests and calculations. And accepting yours because I don't want to trouble mine doesn't feel fair to me.
Anyway, it's all a moot point because I need it right now, within this week at most, and there's no way it would arrive that fast. I've noticed that all packages from UK to Spain get sent via Germany, for whatever causes, and sometimes take longer than if sent from the US.
Thanks again and best regards from V.
