Hi Eric,

Since you are new to the forums I do not know if you are aware of swissmicros.com. It is a company which produces clones of some popular HP models under emulation, actually running the original OS of the calculator. The devices are of very high quality. Many members here have one or more of them along with our HPs.

Welcome and best regards Smile

RE: HP-16C
The auction site eB is probably your best bet.

There's not likely to be many folk on here selling one, since it's a model with a small but faithful following Smile, although it's always worth asking as you did.

They come up on eB fairly often, but many are in the US, over-priced and unlikely to sell. And if French Customs are anything like those here in the UK, then you're likely to get slapped with high import duties and handling charges, or the expensive "all costs included" shipping option.

It may take some months for a reasonably-priced one to appear on eB, but it does happen; I got mine that way. Set a "saved search" and wait…

A mint example with box, case, manuals etc is going to be several hundred Euro. A well-used, but perfectly functional one, with just case, can hopefully found for nearer €150, if you're patient. And do keep an eye on the US ones, in case a cheap one appears, and you can bear the shipping & import costs.

The above is probably all obvious to you anyway, apologies.

Hi,
there is currently one proposed on 'le bon coin' :
https://www.leboncoin.fr/collection/1774471776.htm/
But the display seems defective, several segments are not displayed and the seller is asking for a 'serious proposal' Big Grin, but who knows, may be it can be fixed?
