Well, it went for over $300 (or at least was bid up to that...)
EBay now hides the bidder names, so no idea who won it...

So, where would one go and see a PDP like this?  I'm in Atlanta,
and the only place I've read of (aside from a few rescuer's houses)
would be the Boston Computer Museum and perhaps one other place
in SF.

I don't recall seeing one at the Smithsonian when they had their  
age... though I did see a Apple 1 (with wooden case) and Pournells  
and my one and only viewing of a Sun 1...
