I still have that heavy green bitch.
I literally felt my heart sink the first time I looked at that thing. And the photos, if I recall, were supposedly taken by LRH himself. Oh, god ...
Also in 1985 I bought a used MK V meter from a sea org'er for $100. It literally took me months to get it from him after I gave him the money. I never did learn to use it. The last time I saw it it was in 6 pieces. All the sides just came apart. I don't know how. Maybe the marcabians came in one night while I was sleeping and smashed it?
If yours fell apart like that it probably was the marcabians. A friend of mine who got out of scn the same time I did (1981) recently gave me his old Mk V meter, which he hadn't used in 35 years. To my surprise it still works, though I did have to get some new leads for it (ebay).
