It's for sale for more than 3 months and it's been relisted 4 times. It is "untested" .
If I remember correctly it started at 200 and previously the seller also sold a QL so he could have tested it, if the QL was in working order.

Andrew,

Perhaps a low offer might be made.

I already have both the Gold Card and Super Gold Card so I am not in the market for this.

The battery expired in 2000 so it has had an expired battery on it for 19 years. Also, it’s an Ingot 6 which is very early. 1st or 2nd batch.

I have also watched this and wondered if the availability of the Tetroid GC & SGC clones has undermined the value of recycled cards such as this. In days gone by it would have been snapped up even untested and with a flat battery such was the scarcity of these expansion cards.

Cheers

Exactly. By my estimate, it's worth about £80-£95?

Why would this be a concern ? (I'm asking because I really do not know)
My card also had a expired battery - just changed it with Tetroid battery module.
Mine has Ingot 20 - I do not know what differences were between the ingot versions, or which version was the last produced

Possibly but in the end its only worth what a buyer is willing to pay.

Not that I am in the market, my GC has spent possibly 15+ years in storage (it also has an Ingot 6 sticker) as I then could afford a SGC + Aurora.
