Hi,

A little history.
Just recently purchased a Apple ][e system from the original owner.
System was originally purchased in 1984 (I've got the original accessories receipt). This system included all the original boxes (Apple ][e has matching serial numbers), manuals, disks, cables, port covers, packing bill ...etc.

Inside though were two cards that I wanted to know about their rarity and value.

One is a Virex card which has three connector headers that are labeled DTE/Modem, DCE/Printer & Parallel/Terminal.
I haven't looked at the documentation yet but it was in SLOT 2 and was told by the owner it was for a printer which was not included in the sale.

The other card is an ALS - Digital Research Advance Logic Systems - The CP/M CARD Rev B (c) 1983
Serial Number (hand Written) 004039

I should have ALL the manuals and the disk and possibly the original Retail boxes also.

This Apple ][e setup doesn't seem to have any yellowing at all. Not much wear on the system as I just took a few other photos of it to document it...

By the way the motherboard has the part numbers on it and there is a white space after the second set of numbers where a letter 'M' is Ink Stamped what does this mean?

Links to my pictures at AppleFritter where I posted the same question.

They appear to be a fairly standard aftermarket parallel/serial card (multi-I/O) and a CP/M card. Many companies made these for the Apples, especially later in the life of the line as with the //e.

I wouldn't think they are particularly rare.
