Currently there‘s one of the earliest QLs ever built for sale on ebay (item 283703938454, bidding starts at GBP 150; BTW: I’m not the seller, nor related to him, nor will I bid for it*.). The QL on auction has serial number D02-001058. This is a damn early serial number, looks like the oldest QL still around!
I’ve seen pictures of D02-001059, but that’s one after it.
* I own a handful of early QLs (build standards D02, D03 and D04), such as D02-001071 with a date label 15 Mar, D03-001108 (from CCH; with EPROMs) D03-001123 (the one from Paul; with the PM EPROMs), D04-001276, D04-001305, ...
A rather old web page explains a bit the story of QL build standards & serial numbers:
Wonder what old QLs are still around?
I wish you a nice and cozy advent and Christmas time, QL forever!
Nagging hardware related question? Post here!

Hmm, the guy lives just a short train hop away from me, maybe I'll ask him if I can have a look once I'm back after the Xmas break (no intention to buy it though)
