Thanks Corey. My keyboard is actually the brown single board version.
Here's a picture of the hole in the back where the add on switch is (and some other pics of my unit): http://s1381.photobucket.com/user/unclefalter/library/Apple%20II%20A2S1 That tiny switch is all there is -- it was used to switch power on and off for the clone psu.
I have been looking for a silver A2M power supply for eons but they seem to be hotly contested.

Yep. I have a spare blank datanetics PCB if you want to transfer your switches to a PCB which doesn't have repairs. This is for the version with the separate encoder daughter board.

PSU seems to be a matter of debate, some have suggested to me it should be the silver A2M, others said it should be the gold 2+ style one I have in there now. Not sure on that. The keyboard is the original for sure, but I had to do some trace repair on it using short jumper wires.

>> Well your rev-4 setup isn't going to be worth top dollar because of the condition and clone motherboard, you don't mention if it's the original datanetics keyboard and if the powersupply is the original one. Infact it may only be worth a couple of hundred dollars or less.
>> Basically the answers to those questions determine if you are simply selling a case or a case with extras. Notice I didn't say you are selling a Rev4 Apple II because the motherboard is missing.
>> Also depending on the hole that was drilled also that can impact the value a lot for a case since people looking for a case want a good condition one.
>> Answer those questions and we will give you a good idea.
>> As for the Rev 2. In the condition explained I'd expect maybe 2k. btw. Rev 0 are going for more 3k if they are in complete condition. Most aren't. They tend to have replacement parts like supply or keyboard. If the motherboard is replaced they are just a case.
>> Also with anything timing is important, if a person is looking at the time, they may spend more than if no one is looking at that specific time. I have seen eBay auctions sometimes too late and kicked my self how low something went for. You just never know.
