Maybe, maybe not. And there they are, as opposed to being mythical, somewhere else.
Anyway, if someone was to go to Kemners and offer $10 a box for all 4, arguing that
"they are pretty far gone, jam city, dusty, in a mess, maybe some blocks are OK, etc."
Then I'd pay for them and pack & postage to my US reshipper in CA. At this address:
3503 Jack Northrop Ave
Hawthorne, CA 90250
And then be facing the postage to Australia too. Hence my low offer.
Reason: As part of the Australian Computer Museum Society equipment dispersal, I have
an IBM 028 and three IBM 026 card punches to restore. Eventually.
Plus that Documation TM200 card reader. Which I'm still seeking a manual for btw.
