I am a technology hoarder and I am trying to reform. To start that process, I am offering my Newton collection for sale. All told, about 19lbs of stuff. If you are interested, I can email photos but an overview follows.
1 Newton Message Pad 2000 upgraded by Apple to a 2100 - powers up normally, screen is unblemished, lid hinges are as new, the cosmetics of the case are like new except where one edge was in contact with the Print Pack box and needs to be gently cleaned 
the original box (the exterior, not the interior packing dividers)
Newton Keyboard and Carrying case, including the DIN to Newt adapter
1 extra nicad pack (2 total including the original), neither showing any corrosion or bulging, but needing new cells
