IBM PCs at auction

These aren't my sales and I have nothing to do with them, but they are both interesting enough for me to call attention to:

First is an original (64K) IBM PC with original boxes, docs and more. It has DOS 1.0, which alone is worth $1K on the eBay market. Here is the eBay auction

The second is another boxed IBM PC but this is the later (and much more common) 256K motherboard version. The eBay Auction started shortly after the first.

I'm especially surprised to see two boxed IBM PCs on eBay at the same time. I've only ever seen about 2 or 3 other boxed units before in several years of monitoring these sorts of things.

I'm very curious how the first one will go. I notified the seller that he probably had DOS 1.0 as part of the auction so it's been updated to reflect that. If it stays low enough, I might bid (at risk to my life since my wife does NOT want more clutter in a house we're trying to sell). :)
