Pads for unplaced devices have a decidedly different
appearance (in my experience) than what I see here.

Usually, the pads are shiny with solder, a remnant
I assume of wave soldering or some other similar
manufacturing technology. For a given device, a
few lead pads will be shiny, some *black*, and some
kinda look lke they've been pulled up off the board.

Sombody had a steady hand, I'll say that for sure.
Either that, or these chips blew themselves off
the board.

I wish I had a photomicroscope so I could take a
picture- you'd see what I mean.

As I said in my post, I'm assuming he gets lots
of these, and he just grabbed this one off the
wrong pile.
