    Hi-

    I did the search for "ipod collectors" b/c a family member of mine has the original ipod and was going to use as a trade in at the Apple Store for a new ipod. A tech working there suggested that he sell as a Collector's Item instead, as would be worth ALOT more than the trade in offer, so posting this in case any of you ipod collectors might be interested? I believe it is the first generation/first model released, and it uses the firewire charger. It looks practically new to me, and just noticed some minor surface scratches on the silver back -- And it works fine! I am not totally sure of the gigabytes, but "think" it is 5GB model.

    I told him that I would do some research on it, so if anyone out there has any interest, or can suggest where I should further look for pricing info, etc. I would greatly appreciate:)

    Also, I have a 4GB ipod mini (Gold Color) that is still in the box and was never used (It also charges via the firewire cable). Additionally, I have the ipod mini Dock that is in the wrapped box and unopened box.

    Thanks.....:apple:

    Unless if it's mint, it's not worth much.
    I've gotten 1G and 2G iPods for about 30 each.
    Scratched, of course.

    ipod mini - Gold, 4 GB, in original box & never used

    I posted something in August, and just found a response from October by user dvdhsu re: the condition of my ipod mini. It is in fact in mint condition, never used, and in original box. I also have the ipod mini dock that is in the unopened box as well.

    I have heard that the mini's are collector items, and specifically read that the gold color was (although not sure why or if true). Does anyone have any other info re: this topic and/or know of ipod collector websites where I might post for sale?

    Thanks..:):apple:

    Depending on your price, I may be interested.

    First-gen iPods go for a lot these days. I traded my sealed first-gen about 2 years ago (I wonder if anyone here has it?).
