There should be a cache of these in the warehouse.

Andy Goldstein donated his MicroVAX-II from the DEC museum to MARCH/VCF.
I picked it up at MRO and delivered it to Infoage.  There was a cable on
its console port.  The MicroVAX-II had been on display at one time but I
believe that it too has been relocated/retired to the warehouse.  It had
DEC property tags as well as other identifying marks that it belonged to
Andy.  If you don't know who Andy Goldstein is/was, too bad for you.
