If prior patterns follow, we will be seeing more of the 4004 microprocessor
chips showing up now. With any luck, the first one listed pulls in a higher
than expected price, and the following ones will slowly reach reasonable

Of course it could be like the Altair where the first ones sold for about
$600 or so, and the price went up from there, and then settled in to the
current $2000 - $3000 or so.
