I'm not sure that's true. Both Stefan Walgenbach and myself's Aldis were made in West Germany, and we got them in the late 90s, before there was any need to fake them. Same flimsy not-quite-right cases (IMHO) and white 64-II keyboard, same 64c colored PS, same cost-reduced short board professionally secured inside. I think the West German Aldi's all has serials that begin with WG A... if that helps. Of course, the styrofoam on yours is in better shape than mine. Looks like a good specimen. Good luck with the sale!

According to Sefan Vogt ( http://blog.byteproject.net/articles/going8bit/ ) WG-A models are not the real Aldi's, but these "Made in USA" are:

"The last WG-A units produced in Germany were made out of remainders as well. So it is quite possible you have a C64 that looks like one, but that doesn’t make it a real Aldi C64. Your WG-A unit has a different mainboard for sure. Take a look at the type label. All Aldi C64 units have a type label saying “C64”, they are all “Made in USA” and the serial always starts with “CA4…”. If yours does not, it’s not the real deal."

So in my opinion this is the real deal! Good luck with the sale :)

Thanks Ocean -- I emailed Stefan Vogt to get his source for that claim, and he HAS responded -- with an essay I am still going through.


Either way, I'm now officially curious what the differences are, so...

Interested. PM incoming.
