If you look at the related the BBC have reported on this topic two years ago when the Apple Is started fetching MegaBucks so it is really a rehash of an old story.

However as supply dries up, and the number of machines in lofts can't go up , if there are the same number of buyers, and they have more money, prices will go up.

Working BBC-B's seem rare. Spetrums less so but as both (Really)only interest UK collectors I can't seem them ever fetching mega mucks. 

The more valuable UK stuff seems to be things like a working NASCOM I , this nice example fetched £255.00

I wonder what a working Newbear 7768 or 6809 board would fetch.
