115 year old pine flooring

so my house was built in 1900. the first floor has 3/4" pine flooring of differing widths and no subfloor. I am removing it to install proper subfloor and new hardwood to match my addition. I know people are going to ask why, but I just don't want it. I have been told that people want this type of floor and I should be able to sell it or at least have someone do the removing for me if they can keep the wood. I don't think it is is great shape, although I don't know what to expect for 115 year old wood? Any thoughts on what this is worth, if anything? How should I go about getting rid of it? Ad in Craig's list?

The odds are someone will want that wood! The wider the boards are the more desirable they are. Ask around, especially at a lumber yard and flooring supplier who they'd know that would be interested.
