Actually, it's a DEC look-alike made in Armonk BFE.
It's commonly called a FOOLS 8
because many are fooled by it's clever imitation of a PDP 8A.
Not worth anything, might as well throw it away.
I know the disappointment you must feel,
and the pain at looking at something so deceptive,
so I'll gladly pay to have some folks come by and take it off your hands.
