How much are the BBC Micro's worth?

It seems to depend on their condition, motherboard revision, installed expansion options and peripherals. There also are a number of different base models, from Model A (probably very uncommon) and Model B to Master 128, Master Compact, Master 512 and so on.

If you look for completed auctions on eBay UK (where most of them appear), I would say a loose machine can go for anything from 5 to 20 or more. Use your currency converter to get USD. However that would be on the UK market. I read you're in Arizona (*) and I believe BBC Micros are far less common in the USA. Acorn at one time tried to introduce the machine but I don't think it sold very well.
