It's for a reel-to-reel of an extremely early (the earliest) known recordings of Bob Dylan. He made it in the bedroom with his friend. They even include some mp3 samples to download.
I remember hearing about this amazing piece on NPR radio, and it's interesting they wind up in Dallas for auction.
It's worth mentioning that the original reel is probably of little use now and he can keep that as far as I'm concerned. What is more useful is the digital transfer rather than the artefact itself.

Koen, you can keep the actual reel-to-reel and original tape. What we fans would really like is a copy of the digital transfer.
I'm sure Moz-Solo could raise enough for you to share that with the world, while you still keep the physical treasure for youself.
