Hi All,

I'm going to be selling off a large collection of Curta Calculators

Please send me an email to oxfordroad64@yahoo.co.uk if you'd like to receive a list of what I have available (I'm based in the UK, but happy to ship worldwide)

I plan to sell them gradually via Ebay, but may consider selling elsewhere if offers are good.

Thanks

Best of luck with the sales. As an aside I've noticed that over the years I've followed eBay Curta sales, the Frenchman ("VERY GOOD STATE" guy) seems to get top dollar for his machines; if I were you I'd follow his lead on presenting yours for sale, to maximize your return.

I've sold around 10 so far on Ebay and a similar number direct to buyers.

If anyone else is in the market for a Curta, send me an email as above and I'll email you a list of what is available.

I have just purchased a type I curta from Will directly - he was very good to deal with, and I think sold at a very reasonable price. If you want to buy, I would recommend you give him an email.

Hi all

If people could email me at the above address, rather than sending a PM on here that'd be appreciated

Thanks

Just stunning. Can you tell us a little more about the two in the center of the bottom 2 photos? They look like prototypes but have latter plastic handles.

Apologies to those who have emailed but haven't had a reply from me, had a few email issues....

I still have a large portion of the collection, so if anyone is looking for an immaculate Curta, let me know Smile

oxfordroad64@yahoo.co.uk

Preference would be given to anyone UK based who can collect, but I can ship worldwide

Very Happy

Bought my first Curta directly from Will in October 2015. The journey to see him was worthwhile for me - a newbie in the world of Curta. Will was happy to show me a range of type 1 and 2 calculators, and miscellaneous original documentation. Touching & feeling is much better than browsing pics on that well known auction site!!!

Hi All,

Apologies for the lack of replies, been crazy busy and haven't had any free time to deal with the Curtas

I've now hopefully replied to everyone who's emailed in the last month or two.

I've still got plenty of Curtas left, so if anyone else is interested, drop me a mail to:

oxfordroad64@yahoo.co.uk

Will
