I want to bid on this lot. What would be a reasonable price WITHOUT the HP 9100A and the wang 700?

Thanks.

Whatever you pay for old calculators, it will NEVER be REASONABLE ;-)

If you still consider buying this lot, search ebay for recent sells of the specified items with "Advanced Search-Recherche approfondie" and "Completed listings only-Uniquement les objets dont la vente est terminée" checked. Take the mean prize for each item and sum them up.

Don't forget the EUR 130 postage and packing and the possible customs fees if you live outside the EU!

Thanks for the answer.
The seller said me that he will give with this lot many old electronic cards from wreck of vintage HP calculators, Nixie tubes... Is it interesting ?

Are you sure you don't want to delete this thread? ;-) You might induce interest in some other potential bidders...

If you have to ask this, it probably is not interesting for you...

You are right :-)
For me, I don't see interest because I have no calculators to repair but I wanted to say, is there a value for these items ?

Is it a good idea to sell everything in a lot? Wouldn't he earn more money when selling them all individually?
Anyway. Either a collector will get very happy, or someone with a lot of money will earn even more money, by buying the lot and selling the pieces individually.
Money rules the world.

I'm not sure I would trust this guy: he only has 1 feedback...

Good luck anyway!

agreed! any seller who explicitly says they will end the auction if the price is not to their liking should not have the pleasure of your bid.

I also think it silly to request a price quote from the most likely group to outbid you. i see that from time to time on the forum!
