    Well, for starters I'd say:
    - Snap some pics
    - Watch if it goes in RCM mode
    - If it does, dump everything.
    - See if any developer here needs something from the dump

    Well you can upgrade or downgrade the unit easily (I imagine) since each revision only checks for 1 burnt fuse. So I guess that could be handy, although I imagine there is much more potential for this unit in the hands of those who know wtf they are doing. (unlike me)

    Do a NAND dump and please oh please send it to me, I want to keep it for archival purposes.

    Yeah and also send it to other people too if they ask, this is good. Real good.

    How would the seller have gotten the unit themselves, were these only handed to developers or would they have been used as floor models in stores?

    Given that OP said the cart slot won't work, I'm assuming that just means retail carts don't run, but maybe demo or dev carts would work in it (if those are even a thing for the switch).
    Like how 4.0.0 firmware updates the card slot on retail units, maybe the edev firmware makes the card slot only work with special cartridges (to stop shady devs trying to sell them on or use them personally afterwards).

    BOOT0 dump + TSEC & SBK keys = Debug Keys dumping ^^
    and a SYSTEM.bin to dump dev tools = convertable to homebrew / injectable after decrypting

    All of that is currently not public, please dump it on some other forum, like shepherd.
