I have never seen this scanned, and it would be great to
have access to it. This series of computers is
interesting to me because many of the classical
algorithms developed by the electric power industry
in the 50's and early 60's used the 702 and 704
as platforms.

Not that I ever expect to find one of them, degraded
or mint.
