September 4, 2019 – CLAIMED – CoCo I Free for Local Pickup in Frederick Maryland

Update: Claimed
A site visitor is giving away his original Radio Shack Color Computer with a few accessories, free for local pickup in Frederick Maryland. He says:

The Color Computer boxes are in ratty condition – that is they look to have gotten wet either before, or after, the rats and squirrels started chewing. The good news is I must have been very thoughtful when I put every thing back in the original packaging since the equipment all looks good to me (see pictures).
Here are pictures showing (and including some idea of the packaging as everything goes into its own box):
– back of the Color Computer with serial number (possibly meaningful in determining when it was manufactured)
– front of the Color Computer
– Color Computer Disk Drive with all the parts
– Color Computer Multi-Pak Interface
– Color Computer Graphics Tablet (X-Pad) – notice the condition of the box – yet the Tablet is totally clean
– Color Computer Dot Matrix Printer (DMP-100)

I will relay messages sent to me in the order received – email to contest at trs-80 dot com. First come first served.
