Robert, are you interested in selling, donating, or both?
The Microsoft Archives would be interested. You’d think they’d have a bunch of Altairs, but they don’t. I can’t find a public link, but I have contact information if you want to talk to them.
I’ve given them some other Microsoft related things they were missing in their collection, but I’m also trying to decide where my Altair will end up. Like Robert and others, I want to make sure it ends up somewhere that really appreciates its historic value.

Please consider the vintage computer museum at InfoAge in Wall, NJ
managed by the Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists group (M.A.R.C.H.):
We try to maintain as many exhibits as possible in working condition.
We also host the annual Vintage Computer Festival (VCF) East. Evan
