amiga 1000 prototype

A while ago, as I rode around Ebay, a well-known online trading site, I came across an object of high historical value.

A black box with a handcrafted look and a keyboard of the same shape was labeled Commodore - Amiga development system. Analyzing the insertion it was possible to guess it was a prototype unit of Amiga 1000 intended for debugging and development of preliminary applications. It seems that several units (the photo would have been number 53) were developed and directed by Commodore in the various locations around the world to have concrete feedback on hardware and software development.
