Thanks! I am circulating the advert below. Please forward that to your email list. Thanks so much for your help.
Very best regards,
Wanted: Proof of Sale, HP PA 7100LC or Motorola 88110 Sold before August 16, 1994
I will pay up to $1,000 for original documentation that shows proof of purchase of a computer system containing either a Hewlett Packard PA 7100LC microprocessor or a Motorola 88110 microprocessor that was sold in the United States of America before August 16, 1994. This applies to computer systems or to the microprocessors (PA 7100LC or Motorola 881100). Proof of sale is an original sales receipt or other original paperwork that proves that the system was purchased in the USA before 8/16/94. If you still have the original system or microprocessor, I would also be interested in purchasing it for fair market value. Known systems that used the microprocessors of interest in the timeframe of interest are listed below:
Motorola 88110 Microprocessor:
· Motorola MVME197DP or MVME197SP single board computers
· Motorola 900, 900R workstations
· Harris Real Time Unix Servers: Harris Night Hawk 5000 series (5800)

· 9000 E-class business servers (Models E25, E35, E45, E55)
· 9000 Series 700 Models 712/60 and 712/80i
· 9000 Models 715/64, 715/100, 725/100
· 9000 Model 743 or model 748i
· HP 3000 Series 9X8 servers such as HP 3000 Series 918 LX, HP 3000 Series 918 RX
