What 's a 3Com 3c515 worth these days?

There were very few *ISA* 10/100 NICs ever made. The 3C515 is one of
them. One of the local junk shops has a couple behind the counter.
They are marked $20. I have no idea if that's a reasonable price or
if they are gouging (they also have some used RTC8139-based boards
next to them for $7, for comparison).

Holger Kruse was considering adding support under Miami for a 3C515
on a GG2 Bus+, but at the time, 3c515 boards were unobtanium, and
they wouldn't be fast, anyway. The only reason to really use an
ISA 10/100 card is if you have a non-PCI machine, and your network
infrastructure is 100 *only* (I have a 4-port 100BaseT hub from NetGear,
for instance - it was cheap at the time).

Just curious, but not curious enough to drop $20 up front.
