I have a 41C laying around. Many years ago it struck me, when I was filling in my tax return form, that I hadn't been using it since I was filling in the tax return form last year! And for summation it is really crazy to depend on a calculator! (Nowadays, we receive forms filled in with everything the tax authorities know of, which is more or less 'everything', already filled in, so there is no need to sum anything unless you have corrections to make.)

So I put it away. I've still got it. It requires batteries of a sizeno longer commonly available (you must go to electronics stores with a large battery section to find them), and I really haven't cared. I keep it as a museum item to show to kids - similar to my 1964 vintage Kodak Instamatic 50 camera and my 1968 vintage Kodak M14 Super-8 camera.

I am not willing to sell any of them. They were part of my childhood and teenage years. You don't sell your memories.
