Three more saved from the brink...

A LINC!!???!?!?!

If it is an honest to goodness original LINC (made by DEC or someone
else), get that before the PDP-8/Is! They are incredibly rare. A bit later
DEC merged a LINC with a Straight-8 to make a LINC-8, also a very rare
machine (I know of three survivors of a little over a hundred made, all
around 1967). Those in turn begat the PDP-12s, esentially PDP-8/Is merged
with LINCs.

Or it could be a LINC that is something completely different...

Keep us informed!
