Here's the original URL:

But I'm afraid, "It's dead, Jim."

As I recall, the guide did not contain any information on grading calculators. It did provide an "average" sales price, but similar condition calculators can sell for a significant difference in price depending on whether or not the calculator includes a case, manual, QRG, or box.

What the guide did provide was a list of all the variations for a given model including battery type, key color, bezel type, and number of feet.

When assessing the value of a calculator on eBay, I look at the physical condition, including the battery compartment, what accessories are included, and what similar calculators have sold for which is not necessarily the BIN price.

Got it (sort of). Here is the page you referenced. It implies there is a 2006 page that was part 1 and it is not in Wayback Machine, unfortunately.
