I paid 150 Euro or so for mine and could sell it for 400 any time now. And in another ten years it will be worth 1000. Bugs notwithstanding. No one who designs bridges and aircraft wings uses a pocket calculator for that anyway, and in every other field bugs don't matter much :-)

So maybe it won’t be worth your 1000 if you hang on to it
I’ve got one too (unused and un-battery’d)
I got it to ....... I’m not sure ..... `I might sell it one day .... or keep it unused until after I die Big Grin

But back then they were at the cutting edge of calculators, now (or even when the 15LE was made) they are just a remake of a classic calc.... I don’t think they hold the same ‘classic’ status.
I.e. they might be of great interest to us enthusiasts that might have had one back in the day.... but in ten years time ? ..... will there be people who will be as interested in them ?
