    I checked your website to find out what the hell an MCM/70 is, but couldn't find it. It must be really something if it's now at #1 in your list.

    Ah, I found it on Wikipedia:

    It is definitely number 1 for me. I do have pics on my site but they are just a "picture dump" of unorganized images of how I received it. It is not linked to the main page but anyone can see them here: http://vintagecomputer.ca/mcm-70-pic-dump/

    I have some less common early-ish machines, but the only ones that are probably somewhat rare are two of my Tandy's.

    First is a 1000AX. Supposedly sold through Wal-Mart back in the day, it is an SX clone - http://www.megley.com/photos/tandy/1000ax

    And the other is a "PC-1000". Tag on the back says it was custom manufactured by Tandy, but otherwise no identifying marks. Not sure the history behind this one. http://www.megley.com/photos/tandy/pc1000

    It is interesting the stories of folks passing up on things that were then junk and are now desirable. I've even done the same...such as not caring at all about and ultimately donating a Gateway like someone posted a photo of and another person expressed interest in. I guess that's how things become collectible and more valuable...they have go through the phase where most people toss them out, then eventually the few remaining leftovers shine. I picked up a couple of Mac LCII machines and IIe cards in the early 2000's...nowadays they hold real value! The real score was picking up the matching Y-cable at a thrift store a few years back for like $2.
