    Default Gmt plant final cleanout commadore stuff help!

    Hi all I'm not well versed in computer stuff but apparently I tossed some computers worth thousands of dollars.

But there's some other commodores laying around plus some equipment for early commodore stuff today's find was 400 sealed wafers starting early 80's about 20 or so in each plastic dish there's parts machines wiring ect.if anyone here knows if there's any value to anything please message me also found via-20 games sealed but again before I toss more stuff into the compactor and dumpsters would like input trust there isn't alot left but who knows...again sorry for destroying rare computers

    Take comfort in knowing "rare" is relative. An Apple I is rare because so few were made. C64, in grand scheme of things, not so much.

    There are plenty of people on here that would be happy to help and offer info, but you're going to have to put in a fair bit more effort on your end.

    I would suggest that you take a look at each machine or box and photograph it separately, with as high a quality camera as you can. Further I'd recommend at least 5 images per machine or item you are trying to ID, from picture looking down on it, a back picture looking down on it, a picture of the bottom and a picture of any stickers/plaques that details (such as model number, voltage req etc).

    IBM 5160 - 360k, 1.44Mb Floppies, NEC V20, 8087-3, 45MB MFM Hard Drive, Vega 7 Graphics, IBM 5154 Monitor running MS-DOS 5.00
    IBM PCJr Model 48360 640kb RAM, NEC V20,, jrIDE Side Cart, 360kb Floppy drives running MS-DOS 5.00
    Evergreen Am5x86-133 64Mb Ram, 8gb HDD, SB16 in a modified ATX case running IBM PC-DOS 7.10

    Well, lets start with basic pictures, then if we can't identify something we can ask for more... 1) overview 2) details. Let's not overwhelm the guy.

    The thought of crushed C64DX's (C65) is heartbreaking...

    Hi, I contacted Bil Herd who was a commodore employee. He said he might be able to come by and look at stuff.
    Can you contact him?

    His email is:
    bherd@c128.com

    Thanks!
