I tend to snatch up any old chips I can (old being early 1970s). Of
course, I have to bend the rules for microprocessors, as very few were
released back then.

I do not yet have a 4004, but I do have some early types like the 8008,
Signetics 2650, Motorola XC6800, and probably quite a few 8080s and
derivatives. "Not yet classics" include the AT&T/WE 32000s, Motorola
XC88K, early SPARCs, etc.

I am still looking for some, namely any iAPX 432 chips, MC68012, and a
4MHz 68000 (probably an XC).
