Well my 2 cents from up north...

I found a bunch of original m000001 MACs (how many zeros...?) about a year
ago but only one had the original 128K board. That one is a keeper for the
collection...most of the m0000001 no-128k cases I have had some 512k boards
put in them IIRC when I checked out all of the 30 compact Macs I have

By the way, I finally finished off my complete compact MAC collection by
finding a boardless Color Classic (no I dont have a Classic II) this
weekend. Unit looks complete except for the missing board...

So if anyone has a working (maybe even non-working) board from a:

Color Classic
Color Classic II

Not original but should work (anybody tried these?):
Performa 275 or 550
LC 520 (not sure if that one ok....)
LC575 board

That he would be willing to part with, Id like to hear from you very much!

I have plenty (too much!) stuff to trade or whatever...
