Subject: In a country store...

About five years ago, in Tasmania in a little mining town called Zeehan, my brother who used to drive through there, said he thought he had seen a Vectrex controller in a box in a general store. I got on the 'phone, and called the general store there, and sure enough, the guy said 'yes I have one, it's been here for about 15 years, it's got $52 (AUS) dollars on it'. Well I was after a bargain, so I offered him $20 (AUS) for it. He accepted and that day he put it on a bus to me (I was living in Hobart at the time, studying at the University of Tasmania). Well I still have that controller in its pristine box, and internal wrapping. I thought it was a great find. I wonder what it would be worth?
Regards
