It seems strange to say it but the fact that you still have the original cardboard box with Acorn labels will add significantly more value to an already valuable item. Good to see that it still powers up, too.

Strangely that's just the box it lived in and I realised fairly recently it was the box the kit was posted in. Old computers need to work or they are just paperweights in my book!

Of course, you are preaching to the converted here - but you would be amazed how much that bit of pulped tree would be likely to add to the overall value, especially as the Acorn 'frank' is legible - does it even have a readable date of posting on it as well?

It all adds to the 'provenance' of the machine.
