This is the second box from the set I received this weekend. The contents of the first box can be found here.

This box was chock full of thick original Commodore Developer manuals and "Amiga Mail." It also came with several "power user" devices for the A1000, and even came with an unfinished Zorro II board the developer had been working on ages ago (and one completely bare board still waiting to be developed for some day).
In this box we find what the Micron SCSI connector was meant for: this simply massive SupraDrive hard drive. This drive still works perfectly and even has custom programs on it the developer wrote himself. I'll explore those more later.
This manual from Commodore likely helped guide the owner/developer as he designed his own Zorro II board.
I believe this is the exact same document as can be found on retro-commodore.eu
The Future Sound package, along with the original microphone and mic stand. I can't wait to play with this !
This is an ENORMOUS collection of Commodore-produced "Amiga Mail" sent to registered Commodore Developers. Priceless. This might be the most complete set of these documents in existence. Possibly?
This is the board that was in-progress and unfinished.
This is another development Zorro board that was never opened, never used.
Just in case I ever want to hook up an Amiga to an old-school TV, I'm good to go.
This is a modded A1000 PSU that can drive the massive Micron SCSI connector. Why it needs power is a bit of an amusing mystery to me.

Such a cool collection of impressive hardware and documentation. I feel very honored to have received and will take good care of it. I'll also do my best over time to electronically scan and preserve parts of this for others to enjoy.

Congrats, some really interesting stuff.

(Don't bother with Dataflyer though, it's crap)
