Greetings All....

I have a rather large collection of Commodore and Amiga devices and machines of various sorts.  I've been collecting them since the early 80's and have quite a few rather rare and/or difficult to obtain items.  The wife and I will be moving back to Japan from the US soon, and there appears to be far too much to ship.  We will not be returning, so storage is not really an option.  If it's still here when the time comes to leave, it goes to the refuse tip.  We will be far to busy to concern ourselve with selling it off piecewise on Ebay.  Serious thoughts would be most appreciated.  Humorous ones would not as time is very short, and such will be ignored along with any future communication from the poster.

I'd be open to helpful serious ideas on what to do with the collection, a reasonable cash offer, a good modern powerful machine suitable for Linux, a nice monitor, or other things of that sort.  I will not dispose of the collection piecemeal, as I don't have enough time for that.  It will not be shipped, but if taken, must all be picked up and taken as is.

Here is a very partial list of what is in the collection :

for Amiga:
large collection of Amiga hardware and documentation
3 A2000s
1 A4000T
1 A3000 with Warp4040 accelerator
several complete sets of RKMs (3rd ed) and loose volumes
A2630 cards
DKB2632 memory expansion cards for A2630
50mhz CSA Rocket Launcher accelerators for A2630
DKB3128 memory expansion
graphics cards
DCTV units
Haitex X-specs drivers and shutter glasses
Amiga Guru book in English (at least one)
spare A2000 keyboards
mice
VR Slingshot
AmigaDos Programmer's guide (3rd ed)
scsi HDs
books
numerous other cards (graphics, NIC, SCSI controllers etc.)
1084s monitors
VoRecOne units
network cards
at least two spare sets of
   Ramsey 7
   Dmac 4
   Buster 11
various spare Amiga chips (from survival kit)
spare 32MB and 16MB memory
Impulse VD-1 framebuffer
several complete sets of the latest ROM Kernel manuals

for C64:
Commodore 64 with power supply
C64-Link - basic 4.0 rom with IEEE-488 bus cable
cartridges
dual drive CBM 8050
CBM 1541 drive
various cables
books
C64 monitor
light pen
expansion chassis
printer buffer
VoiceMaster voice recognition device (mike headset needs repair)

Other Things:
SGI O2 machines
a 64 bit DEC Alpha 500 MHz machine
some Connection Machine supercomputer boards
   some from CM-2, some from CM-5


The collection is currently located in Western NY.  It is currently boxed and stacked up awaiting disposal, but here are two photographs which may be of help:

The boxes on the shelf are mostly packed with various Amiga cards.  There is also cabling, and a box of Bigfoot power supplies (untested).

The machines have not been used in quite some time, and some of the hard drives have been removed.  The A4000T was disassembled for shipment from Japan, and the components are distributed among the boxes on the shelf.  There is a 50MHz 060 for it packed away as well.  The hard drive has been removed.

To dispose of this would be a shame. I am sure you know how much this all is worth.

He never replied to me with what I thought was a fair offer, so I would assume it was all sold.

Best to those who bought it and the seller.

Or he thew them in to the bin... I sent several PM’s letting him know that I am in NY as well and would like the items but he ghosted out so.. oh well. I have 3 4kT’s anyhow. I would have only kept that and floated the rest out to whom ever was interested.
