Sorry, but this sold about a week ago, so it is no longer available
from me. I got only one inquiry a couple of days after I posted this
question looking for suggestions, and he ended up buying this after he
verified it was a legit license. Then got two more in the last couple
of days, so thought I would put something here, so everyone knew that
it was no longer available. I never did hear one comment from anyone
about any suggestions as to where something like this could be sold,
so that question never did get resolved.

The Professional version of Mathematica is indeed transferable (but am
not sure about the student or academic) -- just read paragraph d of
the Mathematica License Agreement's "Permitted Uses" section about how
to transfer a license, and verify with Wolfram that the license is the
proper "Use Class", and follow the steps. I suppose the difficult part
is being able to verify that the license in question is a legit copy,
and we were able to do it by having the buyer call the Wolfram sales
person I bought it from and they verified it, so the buyer was
satisfied and I didn't need to give out the license number before I
received payment.

Anyway, thanks to the moderator for trying to establish some kind of
mechanism for people to ask for suggestions on what to do with  a no-
longer-used copy of Mathematica.
