    Question I need an antique expert . Probably i have something worth.

    Hi there!
    I have bought this a few months ago.
    I fell in love at first sight.
    It's both sides full gold plated. Every element is gold plated!
    All is handmade- even the "titles".
    A few days ago i saw at e-bay that one element from this board ( the red one) is worth 8,50 $ :O
    i don't know how is this- an ancient computer?
    But i want to know if there is an y antique expert on this forum and could tell me how much this is worth.
    I would be very grateful.



    ps: I am from Poalnd so sorry if i make gramatical errors.

    I add 4 photos of the board:

    Thanks for sharing the photos of your board. I would shine it up a bit ad hang it on a wall to admire for years to come. 73, Mike ke4ilg

    What a neat old board! And for sure that has quite a bit of gold trace although for scrap value it won't change your life lol. If you don't want to keep it as a cool vintage decoration, maybe try and throw it up on ebay for $150-200 and see if collectors of vintage electronics are interested. No matter what you do with it it's a super cool find and thanks for sharing!

    The funniest thing is that i bought it at polish auctions site for 5zł (its like 1.1$(!!!))
    Nobody bid it - only me.
    When i opened the package with this board i was like "W*F?!", because almost every element is fully gold plated and, like i had said before, the board full fold plated both sides.

    You might look at the flat plate things on the left side. ( Picture #1 )

    Scratch one with a file. See if it's gold plating -or- solid gold underneath.

    It's rare, but i found an RF oscillator chip mounted on a sold industrial gold heat sink once.
