This is a “raw asset picture dump” post. It is a fairly un-annotated dump of pictures taken while archiving a vintage asset. Click any picture for the full-resolution version. The title indicates the asset catalog number.
Raw notes for this asset: “Complete keyboard disassembly and cleaning of all components. All keys and other tested functions work, though a few keys still stick down if pressed hard. Excellent internal and external condition with almost no yellowing. Anti-tilt post missing off F1 key. Keys are uneven after plunger reassembly”
This is a Commodore VIC-20 of the oldest flavor with gold badge, PET keyboard and 2-pin AC input. It originated in my NYC collection, and has been stored in uncontrolled Florida garage conditions from 12/30/2011 through its catalog date of 10/15/2018. It is fully functional apart from some sticky keys.
