Turned out he had never encountered this situation and was just doing as 
he has done breaking down other scrap.  Pull breakage one way, and keep 
motherboards and the like (per modern pc's) another. Hopefully he will 
share the other parts of the system and we can see what he got.  Not 
sure how far down it is all been taken though.

When pulling apart old stuff 90's test equipment, advertising scrap, and 
the like they make more than trying to treat everything like a museum 
artifact.  The thing is do they keep doing it once you tell them.  I 
think this guy will listen.  we'll see.
