Of the 16K-64K mb's there are reputed to have been two distinct series,
called "Series 0" and "Series 1." A 16K, Series 0, no-floppy IBM PC is
alleged to have sold at auction in the UK for over UKP 10,000 ....and my
intuition (but no more than that) detects an institutional buyer. (And not
auction like eBay -- auction like Christie's.)
