Should I bother? HP-34C in rough shape

RE: Should I bother? HP-34C in rough shape
I would say yes to a complete package. In fact I would jump at it. I just restored a 34c but it involved bypassing the power flex circuit and hardwiring to PCA the power and charge wires plus making new battery tabs. Payed $30 for it not working and no box, case, manuals.

Fortunately the battery corrosion is situated far enough away from the PCA as to not damage it. It may affect the LEDs but these are easily replaceable with a donor 31e or the like. I think the box and manuals are worth the value.

I never see HP stuff in the local Vancouver flea markets or thrift stores :-(
