I wonder where the shell was sourced from; since AFAIK Apple did not start doing clear shells for proto till Image Writer II time frame.

The creator is asking for interest on Facebook, but for those of us who don't use Facebook, we can't let him know our interest because he's blocked any contact on eBay. [!]

I suppose one would worry about RFI from an Apple II while listening to AM radio broadcast or working with your old citizen's band radio. (or the likes of)

In today's digital world, I doubt a 1MHz Apple ][ board with all it's hetrodyning built-in would ever bother anything at a practical level these days.
