Jim, that machine was on display in the museum from the time we moved into the current museum space (a few years ago) until just recently.
It was replaced by the (now working) Xerox Star that was demoed during VCF East Virtual a couple weeks ago.
The machine, keyboard and monitor were displayed. I cannot say if there is a printer but the 860 from the museum is back in the warehouse along with all the other Xerox machines and components in the VCF collection. We can easily check to see exactly what other components if any are there.
We are currently doing a workshop to restore/repair VCF Artifacts. We will be doing at least one or two of these a year (as often as we can) so the 860 would be an excellent candidate for a future VCF artifact workshop!
