COMMODORE GOLDEN JUBILLEE 64: The fully functional Golden Jubilee Commodore 64 was issued to celebrate the 1,000,000th C64 sold in Germany. This unit has the serial number 1,000,212 . According to Retrobits, the Gold 64 first appeared at CES in 1984 when US Sales of the 64 topped One Million Units. I read a site that claimed this units had their chassis dipping in gold and then assembled, however, I would think the plastic would melt.

WAYNES WORLD – PET 4032
COMMODORE VIC-1213 MACHINE LANGUAGE MONITOR CARTRIDGE: Yes, with this cartridge you could write your programs in HEX and with the amount of memory the VIC had available to it, commercial programmers really needed to keep their code clean and small.
AMAZING COMMODORE SFD 1001: What is so unusual about this drive, you ask? Well simply put, this drive allows you to store a full meg of data on regular single density disks!! Pretty amazing when you consider when these drives were made!! (early 1980s.) There were hard drives at this time with 1 meg capacities and this drive manages to do it on cheap single density disks!! We can only put 1.44MB on High Density floppies even today (2002). There are probably only a few hundred of these left in the world. The last two sentences are courtesy of Paul Gable. The SFD-1001 which was sold mostly through liquidators was an IEEE-488 based drive. Back in the days when these were being sold I heard it said that SFD stood for ‘Super Fast Drive’ because it was parallel. At the time when 1541’s reigned, C= drive speed was incredibly slow. The last two sentences are courtesy of Daniel Bingamon The SFD1001 works on C64/128 & possibly the PET.Australia’s Trevor Roydhouse indicated that he paid $80 just for the cable required to get it connected to a C64 and that with some mods, he got it working on a VIC!

KOALA PAINTER TOUCH PAD: This Koala Pad was used with Commodore 64’s and Commodore 128’s to create graphics and art. Yet another… ‘Apple did not invent this stuff’ moment.
COMMODORE PET 200: The Commodore PET 200 is rebaged PET 8096 SK. This particular unit is the S model which designates a Swedish keyboard to enable characters like Å, Ä and Ö. According to Anders G. who is the proud owner of this unit (and provided these pictures, thank you) the S was only sold by two stores in Sweden for a very short time (i.e. it is one of the most rare production models around)

COMMODORE EDUCATOR 64 / PET 64: Commodore 64 in a standard PET chassis used primarily by teachers in the class. The documentation on this history of this product is not clear but it the rumour was that Commodore did not want to throw out 64’s that were coming back on warrenty so they stuffed the used C64 motherboards inside the PET type chassis and bingo bongo, Commodore had a whole new product line to make teachers feel important.
SINCLAIR TRADE IN OFFER FOR COMMODORE PET: This promotions resulted in Commodore having thousands of Sinclairs shipped in. They had so many they ended up using several of them as door stops in the offices
