Actually that former HP-41 is no more than scrap of no sale value, since virtually everything has been destroyed.
One who buys that scrap has to bear the blame;-)

that's partly correct. i managed to salvage the time modules from them. they make for an excellent HP-41CL Time Module Implant
wouldn't buy them for $65, though.

I got 2 good CX display units, a plug-in EPROM and usable keyboard and case components, as well as the time modules Hans mentions above. Seller would always post lots of good pictures and by carefully examining them I was able to get a good idea what I might be able to salvage from them.

I got one from that source for exactly that purpose.

I have to concur that they where purposefully destroyed and also believe they where used for some sort of military purpose. Nothing special inside, so I guess they did it "just to make sure..."

Wonders of the military mind.
