Darn it! Oh well! That goes to show we learn something new every day! I didn't image they would be rare given the fact that Fidelity made 600,000 CC7s but I hadn't seen one before.

BTW, the CC7 box is probably the one I dislike the most because it's just covering the Styrofoam and it's not hard to have tears on it as you take the unit out and put it back again.

These transparent overlays are not as rare as you think Ismenio. I have lost count of how many I have. But it might be one or it might be two.

Does anyone else have an original Australian Fidelity adaptor with their CC7?

Tom you could always buy a CC7 with a nice box and throw the CC7 away.

Looks like the spitting image of my box. I think what I should do is remove the bulky adapter from the box, because that's probably the culprit for the destruction of the cardboard container.
I hardly dare to confess this, but I threw away the boxes of my first seventy-or-so computers. It was only when Hein Veldhuis told me about the importance of boxes to a collection that I stopped discarding them ...

Shamefacedly,

tom

Tom, many thanks for that! That's a great honor!
Regarding your box, how bad is it?
I have this extra one that you're welcome to have if it's in better shape than yours.
If you want it, just email me your address and I'll send it to you:

If it contributes towards making you happy, yes I do have the sheet you mention - although the box that houses my CC7 is on the verge of falling apart.

A second thing I wish I could make you happy with is a link at the Overtom Museum to Ismenio's Computer Collection.

felicific regards,

tom

How many of you have one of these? It came with a Fidelity Chess Challenger 7 and I don't recall seeing this before. Was it also included in other models?:

Ismenio,

I have seen those pictured on 2 or 3 eBay ads, and I think they were all CC7's.  Unfortunately, my CC7 didn't come with one. 

I could use one of them to put on my CC1's so that I would know the proper moves to play. 

You are one lucky dog to have one of these!
