Surely someone may find that to be collectible---is it the same
vintage as the Bell 212 modems? (I've got a couple of the Bell modems
and auto-dialers :-)

Someone could use that in a classic system that uses 8" floppies... might
be a good backup if the 8" floppy fails and needs a temporary replacement
while it's being repaired.

If you put them in a box and save them in a trust for your great great
