FWIW I bought two Ozzies, an OCC-1 and an Osborne 1, for $40 last Febuary.
I also got a stack of docs and a binder full of disks with them. Both
Ozzies work. Let's see, that's either 5 or 6 of them that I now have!

   The MODEM is sort of rare and it and the disks are worth a few bucks but
the smoking Oz is $5 item IMO.
