Generally speaking, the 41 Translator variant is more rare and as a result, more expensive.

My suggestion is to search for complete HP-71B systems; many such systems have a Forth/Assembler (or 41-Translator) ROM included and often can be bought for less than the price of the standalone ROM listings, which are generally aimed at collectors (as the prices prove).

Also, there were many programs, tips, hints, etc. for HP-71 Forth submitted to the PPC Computer Journal, CHHU and HPX newsletters in the late 80's; by coincidence, I've been researching some of these exact articles recently. A DVD with all those issues (plus a ton more) is available from Jake Schwartz here. Strongly recommended for all fans of classic HP Calculators.
