I have a RadioShack 63-1040 red laser pointer manufactured in March of 1994 and I was wondering how much it is worth. It is 4.5V N5x3. Hopefully this is the right forum.

Thank you

I have no idea what kind of laser that is. Is it a gas laser, like a He-Ne, or a pointer? Do you have a photo? Need more that a RS part number and year.

Yes, it still works. I would think the value might be a bit higher than normal now that RadioShack is gone.

Radio Shack wasn't known for their high quality. These lasers that may have cost a lot back in 1994 are now very inexpensive and of higher output powers. It is likely not worth your time trying to sell it.

Probably would just hold onto it if I were you. Doubt you will get much of an offer here.

Could try putting it on ebay for $100 and see if anyone takes it, but I doubt it.

Well, that'd be about $132 in today's money.
Yes, but you can buy a laser pointer that does as well if not better for $2.00 new today. It is a used old laser pointer. How much do you think a used cell phone from the same period would be worth to anybody now?

Haha, yes very true. Was only kidding. But I do believe it has some value to RadioShack fans. Sentimental value.

There is a guy on PL that collects old Lasers.
Maybe he would be interested. Goes by the
name "Eidetic".

Yes it would.
I'd keep it, RadioShack products have a cult following.
I've got a clone TRS-80 computer made by an Aussie company called Dick Smith that was our version of RadioShack and I'm keeping it for sentimental reasons.
