That could be your retirement sale in years to come.
Good find sir!
Yea I won't be selling it. I always wanted one and even though I had to wait 14yrs I still want it. It's useful and I like Claris Works and know the programs on it I remember them in school and at the libraries.

I got to tour Google last winter with someone we know who works there. They have this little 'shrine' area set up where all the geeks have lovingly brought their older machines in (fully operational, of course) and set them up in a kind of museum. Atari, old Apple IIC's, Commodores, IBMs, and TI-99/4A (which we used to have!)
I think Apple technology does become collectable. They're so beautiful. We were a bit horrified when we found out the Apple IIC we gave away is worth some money now. If it works, hang onto it. These are not rare now, but it won't take long for them to disappear from the scene.
Plus, you can still use it for stuff, even if it can't handle the internet anymore. Macs are pretty wonderful things.

It's amazing what one can find at a thrift store/flea market/ garage or whatever sale. If you look hard enough, there is almost always a gem in the pile of trash at those places.
I once found a pre-WWI clock at a garage sale. Unfortunately, it did not work, but I still got it for around $50 I think.
Congrats on the find, and the job.
