I have  one, restored, was running when stored but not powered up in

Serial number unknown; IIRC correctly the tag with  the serial number

Obtained from a  collector called Erik in... Netherlands I think, circa

pdp-8/L, and some other  bits, for the 8/S and a working VT05.. see pic

Pics on that page  are interesting, as it's the only time around 90% of
the DEC portion of the  Corestore collection has all been lined up and
visible in the same place at  the same time!

Oh 8/m has been discussed in front panel talk... here's  a nice pic of

'No  greater love hath a man than he lay down his life for his brother.
Not for  millions, not for glory, not for fame.
For one person, in the dark, where  no one will ever know or  see.'
