Not at all. Specially since it also included the manual,
etc. I would have paid that much myself if only I had
noticed the auction before it was over. Other ROMs
prone to reach such heights include the PPC-ROM + manual
combination and the HP-71B's Math, Forth/Assembler and 41C
translator ROMs, among others. See any being auctioned recently ?

I sold my extra one on ebay three years ago for $127. Lets see ... $127 -> $396 ... that's an annual appreciation of 46.1% per year. Wow!

ZenROM yes, PPC with manual no, Forth/Translator no.

Far too high for the latter two. Top prices should be around $200 for these latter two. Just my opinion.

Would it be possible to have an exhausted list of the "woe no more available" ROMs developped by other companies than HP for the HP41 system.

I heard about PPC-Rom, ZenROM , ...

Is there other ???? With which functionalities ??? For what to do ???

It may be interesting to have these informations in the HPMuseum ....
