I have heard that there is quite a bit of variation from one to the next.
But I haven't had the chance to see several side by side to compare.
It hadn't yet reached the stage of mass production of absolutley identical 

The PEOPLE who have them, and the stories about how they got into it are 
also interesting. 
Even the people who bought into it more recently.

Not to worry.  Evan is very capable of expanding the space if it gets too 
crowded, rather than turning away anything that is more interesting.
If anything, having the crowds all clustered around the "artifacts of 
divine provenance" will make it less crowded around the good stuff!

I hope that my health holds up well enough to fill the consignment area 
with a few cubic meters of stuff that I need to get out of my house.
And, not to worry, I will not be bringing any Apple 1 computers.
