View Full Version : Father in law collected Commodore Pets and peripherals, now he's passed away...

...and I've acquired some of them to sell for his widow.

I know the forum rules probably prohibit advertising so I just want to know if what I have is collectable. I'm in the UK.

Amongst other things I have printers for the Pet ( 4022 and others), Voice response units (4010), dual floppy disk drives (4040 and 8050) and a 4032 CBM. All working as far as I can tell (they power up fine).

I know very little about this world of yours, but I am active in forums specific to my own interests. I hope therefore that you'll understand I'm asking the experts here for some advice. I'd like his kit to go somewhere where it's appreciated.

You're welcome to advertise the equipment in the special for-sale/trade subforum a bit further down on the main forum page. As of value; I have no idea when it comes to PET.

...Voice response units (4010)...
Oh, a 4010... very interesting!

Where about in the UK are you? That makes a difference If you add a location to your profile it gets added to the top of your posts, which is helpful when you are selling things:-

There are also UK specific forums here:-


with a a sales/wanted section...

Thanks. In London. I'll look at the other forum also.

Ebay isn't a bad idea as things usually find their true value especially a rare item with a bidding war!

Welcome to the forums, despite the unfortunate terms. Certainly feel free to post a list of what you have. There's a good share of EU collectors here as well. As far the comments, depending on how you all are doing might depend on the best sales action. If you're tight on money you might just honestly post it on ebay and let folks (us or other collectors) know the auction name. That will probably get the most money out of the items if that's the concern. If it's more of a meaningful use of equipment then posting here, that other forum, or even amibay should find decent collectors that can happily use and cherish the equipment and possibly offer some guidance on what they may be worth (or post the list and take some offers as they come in).

Best of luck and condolences. Nice of you to step up though.
