Oh, yes
It was a loss...bought during the big boom -

We have other losses that I can document from that era.

Did so much research on those, and on this one, that I'd like to just be done...not worth the time - want them off the books - done.

Just wanted to make sure that the IRS would be 'happy' with a cost basis of zero.
