Default Prototype Fidelity 14 value?

So this I believe and what my grand dad believes is a prototype of the Fidelity 14 TV from the 80s. My grand dad was the designer of this TV and he was able to keep it after the mass one came out and it was bought by Amstrad.

This TV shows in colour and I have used it to play my Megadrive, SNES and N64.

I'm currently keeping the TV but I also wanted to see if I could find someone to give it some sort of valuation if I was to sell it.

I think it can only have a value to you, sentimental value....a 3rd party could never appreciate this. Essentially it has little or no monetary value. I would just keep it in your Grandad's memory.

Agreed. If it was a prototype of an older or rare model, perhaps in a makeshift box with extra wiring it might interest someone, but this looks like a normal F14, and these sets aren't really of an age to interest collectors.
Still, as a sentimental item it's worth hanging on to.

Does it have any identifying marks, for instance serial number 001 or some-such?
