From ebay recently:
This HP-41CV calculator does not turn on. I am not sure if it just needs a new battery, or if there is another problem. Sold AS-IS! It does have an ADVANTAGE pack and a case. It is from the early 80s. The case is in very good condition and the calculator is also in good condition. The calculator has a chip off the battery cover on the back side - about 1/4 inch by 3/8 inch. Not visible from the front. It also has some dust under the display cover. Comes with a handbook and programming guide - together in one spiral bound book. Buyer pays USPS shipping - either parcel post or Priority Mail.
[UNIT SOLD BUY-IT-NOW FOR $39, May 7, 2003]
This is a used Advantage module for the HP-41C/CV/CX calculator. This module adds math, matrix, computer science and business & financial functions to the basic hp 41 calculator. The module is working fine.
This auction is for the extension module only. There is no documentation. However, it may be obtained online from the hp museum (www.hpmuseum.org).
The auction is for what the picture shows. No calculator is included either!
Buyer adds $5 for s&h, domestic US.
[UNIT SOLD FOR $72, May 7, 2003]
These are the types of things I was talking about. The Buy-it-Now guy above sure got a good deal. Even a non-working CV will go without the module for over the $39 he paid for it, and he could get about $72 for the module alone. If it were my brother and I, we would both have the genuine article, each with an Advantage pac, and probably wind up with a slight profit or at least no money arguments (which is unusual for siblings not to be arguing about $10 here and there all the time).
