Early A806 Harvest Gold Maytag set on Craigslist, with the chrome (stainless) capped lint filter.

The washer's tub looks really nice, clean, and shiney

Christina, take a good look at the bluish band around the bottom third of the tub. A sign of high mileage as the white porcelain is wearing off down where the turbulence occurs. Also a close up of the front panel also appears to be high mileage. Just 'sayin.

Yeah, they could be high mileage and/or just not very well cared for.

On the other hand, the black lettering on the push buttons seems to be intact, albeit yellowed, despite pushing 50 years old,

In any case, tubs can be swapped out but Harvest Gold A806 matched sets are rare as hens teeth.

I sent an email to the seller, no response yet.

May just be a shadow from the lighting angle.

I do see the blue wear line, now that you mentioned it. I wad looking at the brighter side of the tub. I never knew to look for that? But like good-sheperd mentions, tubs can be swapped out. Especially if the innards are in good working condition.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you good-shepherd!

I know someone not far from where I live that must have a dozen or more 806/08's in all colors. Not too rare around these parts. I've got one in Harvest Gold as well.
I always liked the really old ones with the chrome banded lint filter and 8-vane agitator.
