Around 6 to 7 P856's / P857's were scrapped at my workplace around
 5 years ago. I saved one complete system and a few CPU and core boards .
The machines were used in production testing of watch IC's.

I did not have more room at the time, which is a shame because they where
nice, real blinken-light machines. Separate rows of switches and lights
for address and data, separate switches to select one of 16 cpu registers,
