I don't recognize 115 etc. as IC part numbers, but
728 or similar 7xx numbers sounds familiar for the
old RTL ICs that Fairchild produced in TO-5 cans.
I don't suppose there's a whole lot of demand for
that family, but then again I also suppose there
aren't a lot available.

Yeah, RTL would be my guess considering the
package and the time frame (67/68), but AFAIK
Fairchild and Motorola used 700 and 900 (later
9000) numbers and these have 10 pins instead of
the usual 8 pins (although power is similarly
connected diagonally, i.e pins 5 and 10). Also odd
that the numbers are consecutive.
Anyway, just thought I'd mention them in case
someone has one of these displays or can use the
