Apple II 800K Diskettes?

I buy 720K 3.5 inch diskette on eBay for about $20 per 100. (You can find a
box of 10 if you don't need a 100.) I search for "floppy 720K". Every week
there is someone selling new-in-box floppies. I also have bought 360K 5.25

I have no connection with the following eBay auction (Item # 1277913625).

If someone needs a boot disk for their SWTPC 6800 or 6809 computer, I can
provided one.
