Mind at least it wasn't L@@K R at RE or L-at-at-K R-at-R-E
The other one that you always see is MINT or "MINT for year" what the
hell does that mean ?
Considdering I only paid £40 for a boxed almost new looking CoCo2 in the
white CoCo1 style case which I am lead to believe is one of the rarest
CoCo models, £100 seems a little extortionate. Same seller also has a
Dragon 32 for £100, which is deffo over the odds, in the UK at least as
they where fairly common, I paid less than that for my Tano 64s
including shipping from the US.
