Yup, that was me. I'll send a PM once I've imaged it. Exciting to finally have a full version.

Can you please also scan the box, disks and manuals?
A few interesting ones today:

This guy has a whole bunch of them.
Microsoft Windows 3.0 For DOS Systems 15 Floppy Disks (360k)
We still need the non-"A" 3.0 release, although I don't know which this is.
juliansrecords1 posted some more cool stuff (at ridiculous prices)
Visi On Graph, 1983, by VisiCorp. Version 1.0
Visi On Plan, 1984, by Control Data/Paladin/VisiCorp. Version 1.2.
This is the later release of Visi On Calc that changed its name to avoid confusion with the unrelated VisiCalc program.
Visi On Applications Manager, 1983, by VisiCorp. Version 1.0
Visi On Word, 1984, by VisiCorp. Version 1.0.

That eBay seller really hit a rich vein of poorly archived software. It's unfortunate they're pricing them out of reach. It pains me I can't get the OS/2 or Windows 2.x stuff. On the other hand, if they were reasonable my to-do pile would probably be higher than my desk. Of note, if you watch any of their listings they do offer you a discount within a couple of days, but 20% off $200+ is still more than I'll spend.
The crazy thing is there was a complete Visi On set a few years back that sold for almost nothing. (Seller should have set a buy-it-now price rather than starting bidding at a low amount)
BTW, despite how the disks say "1.0" it would be good to verify if these contain the same or an updated version. I have a somewhat borked Visi On Plan disk image, and I've never been able to get it to run using what is out there.
The version number on app manager accessory disks is "1.0(1)" vs. just "1.0" on the existing copy. So it could be some minor update. The part numbers match in both copies, though.
Graph and Word seem to have identical disk labels in both copies, though it's hard to say for the latter due to blurry photo.
What I wonder is whether the Plan version 1.2 was sold in the regular 1.0 bundle or there really was an updated version of the whole package around the time Visicorp died.
Ah, nice catch, I hadn't noticed that. That would strongly suggest that it has some update. The version number looks like it is on a sticker, so they probably re-used existing disks. (I wonder if they fixed it to run on an AT, and if it is still copy protected?)
As I understand it, VisiCorp got in trouble over the name (it was completely unrelated to VisiCalc), and even got sued by Dan Bricklin over a bunch of other stuff, so at some point they had to stop selling it as "Visi On Calc". Assuming they sold the programs as a bundle, they would have been forced to replace Visi On Calc with Visi On Plan.
If anyone has a QIC drive and wants a huge project, this auction is selling various SunOS software, including InterLeaf!
Wish I had the hardware (and skill) required to dump the tapes. I'm sure the rubber bands in the tapes have turned to goo by now.
Also, interesting to see someone paid +$200 for that copy of Paradox for OS/2. Hope that shows up online at some point, but it probably will live its days in someone's private collection.

The Norton Utilities V1.00 Floppy Disk 5.25" Vintage
Asking price is nuts, but it is something to look at, and it appears to be from the original owner, so even though it does not say "1.00" on it, it is likely the first version as stated. Note that the the disk says "demonstration" on it even though it is not really a demo (the early tools were really sort of programming samples), and it is a "flippy" disk, compatible with IBM PC-DOS 1.00.
Winworld still needs 1.x and 2.x.
(Already Sold) The Norton Utilities Disklook demonstration
Well, then that means this one was also Norton Utilities 1.00...

Regarding "(Already Sold) The Norton Utilities Disklook demonstration", don't worry -- I picked it up and plan to post it on pcjs.org as soon as it arrives. I've long been on the lookout for original Norton Utilities releases and hope this disk is OK. And yes, that other guy's listing is nuts -- I made a reasonable offer but it was ignored.
Awesome. Thank you very much!
Well, shit, that updated copy of Visi On Applications Manager sold for more than I could afford right now. As mentioned, I think that is what was needed to run the later Visi On Plan (Calc). Don't know if there were any other differences. That juliansrecords1 guy is making a real killing off of this stuff.
