I went back, and could find only one! It was loose in a box of some small AC
power socket modules, could not find anything that it came out of. The price
was $4 +tax. It is an Intel Magnetics 7110-1 with a date code (I guess)
of 8204. There is a string of 80 Hex characters printed on it, mostly "F", a
320 bit error map
of some kind?

I will let you know if I find any more. I plan to go back to look more
anyway, there also appeared to be a cabinet with a 8 inch floppy
drive in it (horizontal). I couldn't really get at it to examine it closely.
(There was a bunch of bad UPS's around and on top of it).
