Type:

Home Computer

Model:

65 not 64

Brand:

Commodore

Country of Manufacture:

United States

 An original prototype COMMODORE 65 COMPUTER #44

This is about as rare as it gets.  A commodore 65 (proposed successor to the most popular computer of all time).

Also included is one of the original prototypes for the protoype!  A prototype Mitsumi Commodore 65..
The keyboard was a pre-production unit that does not even have a populated keyset.

As you can see, as with most of the prototypes, it is an unfinished computer.  It is missing some chips that would be present
in the production model if it got that far.  The project was scrapped and only a few motherboards escaped...even fewer in cases.


Not really much more  necessary to say.

As usual, NO RESERVE!
