"My parents sold their 57 Chevy station wagon for $50 in 1965. What is it
Good question.Condition unspecified and 50 years ago.Certainly a 'valid' point.
Maybe Todd's new toy will be worth a lot of money in about 50 years,if he gets it working and somebody living in 2065 remembers what an IBM 026 was.
Value is truly in the wallet of the buyer.
"That one, surely, would be worth LESS that $100, due to the extra work that would be required to get that extra stuff(?) out of it."
Extractions are usually expensive and painful.

If somebody has one that they will sell for less than $100, then they can
get away with saying that that is what it is worth. Otherwise, "value"
has no quantifier other than what some buyer and some seller agree on.

When I was at Goddard Space Center, we had an 026 connected to a Gerber
Data Digitizer (an oversized etch-a-sketch). When you hit the foot pedal,
it would punch two three digit numbers of the current coordinates of the
crosshairs. That one, surely, would be worth LESS that $100, due to the
extra work that would be required to get that extra stuff out of it.
