4160ste, how rare?

It's worth at most as much as a regular STE with 4MB of RAM plus a $30 4160STE badge/sticker from eBay. 520STE is the same as a 1040 STE with a different badge and a couple of extra SIMMs, both can be upgraded to 4MB for about $10 or $20.

Alright so wait a second. Yeah when it comes to getting ste, the 520 and 1040 is the same because it has the same memory expansion, as opposed to the first 520 and 1040's that dosent. The only difference is the bridge sticker? Did they ever sell 4160s in a box or was that only created by a new sticker?

There are only 3rd party and DIY RAM expension options for pre-STE machines. STEs have SIMM slots, with only rare exceptions. Atari made a few '4160' stickers to give to some dealers to rebadge RAM upgraded STEs, I've never seen one in real life and wouldn't pay $30 for a sticker ;)

520 and 1040 are same machine only 1040 has 1MB RAM, 520 512K RAM. The 4096 would have 4MB RAM (the max possible) though Atari never produced a 4096 AFAIK. As galax mentioned, someone had a lot of 4096 stickers printed a while ago and charged a lot per sticker, thats how the 4096 machines came into existence. As for being "rare" well , rare as in rare sticker possible yes, rare as in rare machine no, its just a stock 520 with 4MB RAM and a new sticker, not what I would call "rare".
