HP Vintage Calculator Collection on National TV And A National Tragedy!

Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) had in it's series about all kinds of collections and collectors Geir Isene show his great collection of HP calculators (he had TIs also, but the HP ones steals the show :-). The episode can be viewed by following this link, the calculators appear around 17:18 into the program I found.

Now to the tragedy: That collection is no longer, it was lost in a fire! That is realy to bad...
