Not a suprise - the 8/s is the second rarest of the -8 line (LINC-8 being
the most). They very rarely come on the market. I don't think a LINC-8 has
ever been on the market.

Some machines will never approach that sort of value. Picking on Honeywell
again, I doubt a Level 6 will ever be worth even a tenth of a PDP-8, even
in 50 years.
