There is obviously some confusion here. How rare the ordinary 35s might be has nothing whatsoever to do with my question. Are you aware that there were (at least) TWO different versions of the relatively recent HP 35s LCD calculator that came out at the same time? The "ordinary" 35s has nothing printed on the keyboard between the keys and the LCD. Those are the ones that were sold in stores (and they are still on the HP website although listed as "Out of stock"). On the other hand, the 35s "Anniversary Edition" has "Celebrating 35 years" in silver script on the keyboard just below the LCD. Tim Wessman above wrote that they were given out by HP directly to various people. Hence they are much more rare. Exactly HOW rare they are, is my only question. I'm not asking anything whatsoever about the ordinary 35s.

Just in case you thought I meant "original 35" (the old LED model) when I wrote "ordinary 35s" (the LCD model), please note: that's not what I meant.

If I misunderstood your point, then we're being quite successful at confusing each other. Smile

No, I did not mean the original HP 35, although except for the Red Dot, you can still buy a very clean one for about a hundred bucks. That is because a lot of them were made, and they are practically indestructable.

The point I was attempting to make is that prices of very ordinary HP calculators can increase many times when they are discontinued by HP and new units become very rare, even if they were originally manufactured in large quantities. If you want to find out how valuable your HP 35s Anniversary Edition is, list it on eBay with a very high reserve price.
