The 68K dips regardless of package use the same pin pads (center to
center location).
The issue was at the start the only 68K fast enough was only in ceramic
You should be able to use any 68K that will clock at that speed ( I
forget what
the DEUNA ran at).

I have the big Moto microprocessor data book and that confirms all the DIP
parts are mechanically interchangeable.  The ceramic is smaller but the
shape (bend) defines the landing point and the socket pin location.
