ZX80 value?

I have a ZX80 which I'm thinking of selling. I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post in, but what would be a reasonable price to ask / expectation of price?

It is boxed and has both 80 & 81 ROMs (plus the keyboard overlay) and a 16K RAM pack (which is not working).

Condition is reasonable for the age, I think - see pic.

Thanks for any help.

Cheers, Martin

If you go via the eBay selling route, upwards of £100 if you are lucky.

I can’t see a photo... (the OP has since attached various photos...)

Thanks for your reply, and picking up on the lack of photo. I didn't complete the attachment process properly.

cheers, Martin

Thanks for your help. I listed it on eBay. Now has just under three days to go, and at £134:

Not much luck needed... ZX80's are going for 'crazy' prices these days. :( Especially if in good nick. Which this one seems to be (compared to some other ZX80's I've seen on offer). I wouldn't be surprised if it fetches £150 or more.

Precisely the reason why I still don't own a ZX80 myself, even though I'd LOVE to have one. If they were a few tenners like a ZX81, I'd have gotten one loooong ago. But it's just too much money just for the heck of it. Read: there's more useful / fun things to spend it on.

They are silly money. A very nice boxed one can do £300 plus at auction which is as close to a ‘true’ value as you can get. They can go for even more with the white PSU.

It sold for £205 in the end. :-)
