Not so rare, but it is rare to find a 128KB on Egypt.

The seller adds an EP64 basic cartridge as a gift(?).

The machine is in beautiful condition in the close-ups. The cartridge is no longer so beautiful ... :)

Not so rare, but it is rare to find a 128KB on Egypt.

It is interesting to see that it has such a low serial number ... 01036, and that the font on the label itself also looks a little different to the later machines that the seller still has on auction.

I'm glad that I bought my EP64 from him back early in March when his prices were a bit lower.

Just noticed a person selling an EP64 on ebay - for £5000 + £50 s/h.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363106531496

Messaged them to ask if the price was a mistake, and the reply was no, but if I wanted to make an offer?

I didn't and a few minutes later another message offering me one for £300 - makes me furious these sharks..

Interestingly, it was accompanied with a picture showing a pile of boxed EP's that they had for sale..

The same seller will also happily sell you an empty Coca Cola bottle for £195! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/363300800022

I think he is the same guy with other nick selling the Egyptian Enterprises stock. He is not a shark, he is just saying:" You don't need to pay thousands of pounds for an Enterprise....".

For me it seems like a strange strategic....but maybe effective.

Hmmm strange tactic indeed..

He gave me some chat about moving a store and putting the price of the item up so that no one would be tempted to buy it.

Sorry, but seen this exact tactic elsewhere in the past.. just hoping to catch someone out I think..

Anyhow..

Ah, ok, now I understand. He tries to make an agreement or a deposit outside Ebay....

That is very risky, yes.

I also have a story. It is not ebay, it was a hungarian flea market website with fixed prices.
 The guy (probably an old man with very bad grammatic) sold 7 pieces commodore cassette-tape with games. Multiple games on both side of the cassette like Raid over Moscow, and another big titles from that era. (The cassette was a pirate copy, not an original one)
 He was offering a casette for 270 Euro. So the whole 7 was total ca 2000 Euro.
 I was asking him, if it was a mistake.
 He told me no, he think these are very fantasic games from that era, and it worth every penny. And nowdays it is hard to find.
 He was asking me to call him, he wanted describe, how well these games are.

 I wrote back him, that these games are available online nowdays, so anyone can copy it into a casette for 4 Euro (The unopened cassettes are expensive nowdays, at least in Hungary).
 He did not answered my message. Probably I broke his little world. :D

 I think he was a isolated insane guy, who selected the price without checking other offers, or the fact that we can find almost any software on the internet for free.
