    Ok, rare, but not necessarily worth much:
    1.) Compumotor 8085 SBC with the Aurius hieroglyphs;
    2.) ADDS 70 RAM-70 16K 2102-based static RAM board, probably from a Tandy 10;
    3.) ADDS 70 FRAM-70 52K 2114-based static RAM board, possibly from a Tandy 10 but for sure from an ADDS 70;
    4.) 6800 wire-wrapped SBC from an old lab computer;
    5.) PDP-8 core plane;
    6.) Toshiba XM-2100B first-gen CD-ROM drive, full-height 5.25;
    7.) Operational first-run Tilmann Reh CPU280 assembled SBC;
    8.) Two complete and one in parts Proteon P4200-series first-gen IP routers; 68020 CPU on multibus, with ProNET/80 fiber token ring interfaces with software and documentation;
    9.) Two operational SGI O2s with good, non-cracked plastic;
    10.) 9 Sun 501-4559 "Panther" UltraSPARC II AXi ATX form-factor industrial motherboards with 440MHz UltraSPARC IIi CPUs, and two UltraSPARC IIe 'Bird's-nest lite' boards.

    Hmm,

    just recognized the "Mohawk 1103 Data Recorder" sitting in my basement...

    This picture was taken when I picked it up:

    I did some cleaning to it and I'm going to fix the white wooden board for the keyboard.

    I've always wondered what the machine my TVT's keyboard came from looked like. Thanks for posting this!

    I would say my Panasonic JR-200U is the rarest I have (http://www.vintagevolts.com/the-panasonic-jr-200u/), followed by my Tomy Tutor.

    For other "bits", I have the Digital Creations DCTV for the Amiga and a Commodore DPS-1101 daisy wheel printer.

    1978 preproduction Atari 800.

    I have heard of only one other like it but no good pictures have been posted.

    Hmm.. most of my stuff is rather common, but I have a few items that is less common than all the rest

    1) Original Commodore Semiconductor Group 6525 4 inch wafer (uncut). This is the tri-port interface used in CBM B600/700, the 1551 disk drive and a few other items.
    2) Original Commodore Semiconductor Group 6569 4 inch wafer (uncut). This is the VIC-II display chip used in Commodore 64s.
    3) An early Vic-20 demo machine with FCC waiver
    4) An Vic-1001 with an integrated reset button
    5) An Amiga 1000 with Prevue keyboard, 1MiB internal memory
    6) An Amiga 4000 with some unidentified graphics boards
    7) A brand new B710 PSU (never used)
    3 pcs of MOS6509 (new and never used)
    9) An Vic-20 RS488 IEEE interface
    10) An Vic-20 RS232C interface

    The last two being not so uncommon.. but still slightly harder to find than the average cartridge. I also have some new games in original packaging that have never been opened.

    My rare items are pretty much centered on things with TI 9900 series processors in them.

    Marinchip S-9900
    Board set for a 1978 TI Dimension 4 prototype (the previous owner (a recycler) thought the case was of no value, so they removed the boards and trashed the rest)
    TI 99/8 prototype (both edge connector types)
    TI-99/2 prototype
    Tomy Pyuuta MK II
