Nice stash

Postby LilJoe on Thu Nov 20, 2014 6:02 pm

For those living in Hamilton click here. I spy a Apple IIc with monitor and loads of Commodore goodies :D

Looks like someones been cleaning out their shed :)

Edit: the sellers got an unknown reserve (drives me crazy when they do that), funny I remember it having a $100 dollar reserve :? maybe it was changed?

Yeah, you can bid forever trying to find a reserve, sometimes you just got to move on.

Often entries like this are a trial to see what people are likely to bid up to. Expect a no reserve starting price around the highest bid the next time it's listed.

Also I see what I think is a Commodore PC10 - if someone does grab that lot, I'd be happy to buy that off you.

I prefer the trial method than the really high "No Reserve". It's a polite way for me to put my hand up and saying I'll pay this much (so they know there is interest) even though it's lower than what they want without leaving a comment. My favourite would be a no reserve, and a reasonable start price, but if that's not on the table I at least like a polite value-vote :)

I'd be worried that the pile has been collected over time sitting outside on a pallet exposed to the elements? Looks like an e-waste operation.
Bit hard to tell but might be worth asking specifically/

Yeah I can see a VIC20, three 64s, five Amiga 500s and a PC10 that appears to have some form of 5.25" hard drive fitted, the IIc with matching monitor, two Apple UniDisks and an Apple 3.5" Drive. Yeah, possibly worth a few hundy.

Looks like I picked up that one after all. Going there on Saturday to collect - will report in once I know what is there.

Went and picked it up - yes, e-waste setup, but this was all set aside inside - so good. Seems in good condition. I'll know once I start the cleanup process. Some test as working. Interesting mix. All PSUs and heaps of floppies also included.

Would love to get my hands on a c64, would you be interested in selling me one?
