ADAM Computer Coleco In-House Cartridges (Not for use on ColecoVision)
A collection of 5 incredibly rare ADAM Computer cartridges, 4 of which were obtained years ago from a former Coleco employee and 1 that was supplied on cartridge by Walters Software Co. Descriptions of each are provided below as well as multiple pictures. ADAM Diagnostic Cartridge - A diagnostic cartridge used for testing the major components (Memory Console, Digital Data Drive #1, Printer and Keyboard) of the ADAM Computer that was used at Coleco to test systems. It was also supplied to repair centers such as Honeywell and ADAM dealers. In all my years of collecting for the CV & ADAM, I have only seen 2 of these Coleco carts that are original...

The computer store/users group that I worked at and this one that I have for sale. There have been reproductions made over the years and they are easily spotted due to an entirely different style of label used. The cartridge and original Coleco label are in very good condition.

ADAM Final Test - A diagnostic cartridge used for testing the major components (Memory Console, RAM, ROMs, Video, Audio, Digital Data Drive #1 and #2, Hand Controller, Printer and Keyboard) of the ADAM Computer that was used In-House at Coleco and possibly supplied to Honeywell. It was acquired in an unlabeled cartridge on an original Coleco socketed cartridge PCB as you can see in the picture. I had a professional looking cartridge label made for it. Most former Coleco employees had this cartridge, but I know of only 2 that still exist aside.

1 - A diagnostic cartridge used to verify the format of Digital Data Packs and Disks that was used In-House at Coleco. I know of only 2 that still exist.

22 - A utility cartridge used for copying Digital Data Packs and Disks that was used In-House at Coleco. Most former Coleco employees had this cartridge, but I know of only 2 that still exist aside from reproductions that have been made over the years. Coleco Graphics Processor - Also known as Project Name by Line due to the title screen that is displayed when the cartridge reset is pressed. This is an In-House Coleco graphics design program using SmartKEY displays that is said to have been used to design the graphics for some of the later released ColecoVision games and some of the ADAM Super Games. It is a complete program with saving/loading features and SmartBASIC programs are available to convert the graphic format used to one that can be used by other ADAM programs. The cartridge was made by Walters Software Co. In 1990 and I have seen a handful of originals over the years, some of which have slight variations in the text on the label. An original Coleco cartridge or cartridge PCB has never been found, only the program on disk that was converted back to cartridge format.
