Subject kinda says it all.
I drove a couple hundred miles to retrieve an IBM System/34 that had been
used for medical billing purposes, and I'm kinda curious how rare these
machines are. Are they at all?

The machine I picked up is complete, was working when shut off (In 1991),
has about 30 of the ten 8" floppy disk jukebox cartridges, about 450
floppies to go with, spare cards, matching modems and a box of
documentation that almost put my back out.
Unfortunately, I don't have any of the TwinAx terminals that go with it -
and I don't have any space to start playing with it.
