I'm not really sure about 10 sector floppies... but the magazine Computer Shopper
(Of Ziff-Davis) ( has many adds for old floppies...
versions of DOS, old laptops, etc... but nothing old enough for classics, except
for floppies, OSes, etc., no full systems... the print version is usually slightly
smaller than 1000 pages (per month, for $5 US), the online has all the ads for
free, but the search engine is hard to use... (was hard to use)
