    Well at least they're not in landfill I guess.

    A very nice collection. OTOH looks like it's missing a few Motorola chips, at least I can't see a 68060 anywhere. Or any of the 6800 family which were typically used as MCUs.

    Also, missing various encrypted modules with the CPU in the module, eg, Hitachi FD1089A/B and FD1094 as used by Sega in some arcade games. There are also plenty of other CPUs used this way - the Z80 in Sega System 1 games was usually in an encrypted module for instance.

    Can't see any of the SH family of chips either - some of them are quite old now. Can't see an original 6502 either - which is surprising for a collection this size.
