you'll be lucky to find a genuine Commodore monitor that's still
alive. They were usually of such poor build quality they died long
ago. That said, the 1084 was a Philips monitor in a new casing so
they might have held out better, I know the newer multiscan (1940
etc.) ones were notorious for dry jointing and suchlike, so much so
that people often just dumped em.
