While rummaging through decades old boxes in my grandparents attic last weekend I discovered a complete Coleco ADAM and a near pristine certificate (complete with name and social security number) entitling my cousin to $500 towards his college scholarship circa 1985!
Needless to say he never collected (but did go to college)
But given how the market crashed and Coleco went under, I am intrigued to find out what - if anything - came of all of those scholarships. I suspect most of those received were for young kids in 1985 which would have left them dormat for a decade or more.
Did they (or someone) honor these?
Were they sued?
I have searched but my “google-fu” has failed me.
Any knowledge on this would be interesting to hear!
