Without googling I think it stood for Vacuum something Display, basically they all use the same kind of technique for display purposes (In colour too!) and its what you had before the LCD stuff came along in its monochromatic wonder

Open to offers but like the topic says, its gauging interest so if the offers good enough, i "may" sell, if that makes any sense!
