"fake" 12C


for your amusement, spotted this on our local online auction site here in nz :


shop display versions of th 12C, missing the internals.


Why the heck wold anyone pay $25 for a 12c shell?


Probably the same reason someone would pay $15.50 for this. And it still needs to be rebuilt, and it's international shipping, which is substantial. At least the 12C housing makes some sense to replace one that is damaged, but I've never heard of a damaged card reader drive wheel.


Maybe I should consider selling off my calculator collection.
