I can’t say that I have ever seen two KIM-1s for sale on Ebay in the same week.
This is one of the newer Commodore KIM-1s as you can see the Commodore MOS logo.
From my previous post about the KIM-1 in case you missed it.
The KIM-1 was developed by Chuck Peddle. His engineering team designed the 6502 CPU, and Chuck designed the KIM-1 to get engineers to start using the chip. What happened was that it was purchased largely by hobbyists who found it’s powerful CPU and low cost attractive.
The KIM-1 was released as a kit in 1976 for a price of $245.00. I estimate this auction will exceed that by $100.
Early KIM-1s have the MOS logo on it. Later KIMs (I believe starting at Revision D) have a Commodore-MOS Logo on it.
While not rare, the KIM-1 is highly sought after by collectors. I myself am the happy owner of a MOS KIM-1. The KIM-1s historical significance make it such a wanted item.
MOS 6502 Trivia:
The MOS 6502 is probably one of the most famous CPUs at the time. The 6502 was the CPU for so many products. It was a powerful chip at a low price and because of this it was used in some well known machines:
The CPU is also listed as one of the 25 microchips that shook the world by the IEEE.
