I'd enjoy having this collection but have other hobbies prioritized over this right now:
Tandy Coco 1 through 3

Thanks for posting the pics. I haven't figured out the re-sizing workflow yet.
Do you think this is a good buy? I think it is likely fair.
On a scale of 1-10, where does a CoCo 3 setup with accessories fit into your club collection want list? (Guessing: A Lisa is a 10, an Apple 800 is a 7....another C64 is 3 (based on need))

I'm not sure on the valuation of the lot- the computers themselves have an "average" eBay price of about $200 each, so the real value is in all of the accessories and software, which I don't really know how to put a price on either way.

The whole Tandy CoCo ecosystem is somewhat outside my field of expertise, as the only machines I've used have been the CoCo 1 we have with the bad cartridge port, and the MC-10. I haven't brought either to any of our more recent shows as I don't have any easy means to set them up with games or software for people to try out yet.

On the number scale you've suggested, I'd rank that in the 3 to 4 range. Technically we do have a CoCo 1, and I do plan on eventually getting that port replaced so we can use it in shows at some point. If we had access to a CoCo 3 with joysticks and whatnot, we'd most certainly put them to good use, though I don't know that we'd need a mortgage payment's worth of stuff to make that possible.

Thanks for your reply! The MC-10 is a coco also. :) We should put that back together and plug it in on that at the next event or hacking meetup.
