I bought 12 pallets of surplus and one of them was a Gaylord full of circuit boards. Most of them are damaged. Anyways, this was in there.

Also, where the check do you find this stuff?

Looks like wire relays from aircraft electronics. Though old digi-mechanical computers used similar boards as well.
Boardsort has a class for pin board and peg board that’s not on the quote form because it doesn’t have a set payout rate.

Send Chris an email with a photo and he’ll let you know how to proceed

I wasnt expecting military aircraft because it was with a bunch of vintage boards that were school surplus. Do I send the boards as they sit? I'll post another topic of everything later.

I found out what it is. It's from 1964 or around that time. An IBM 360 model 91.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_System/360

This part goes to it.

I wonder if it's worth anything.

So old digi Mec it is. Lol.
Still best off sending a photo to Chris. This stuff doesn’t have a public class, as I’ve found out myself.

The 91 was drafted in 1966 and went to install in 1967-1972.
If you had the entire machine it may be worth a bit. As parts; you’re looking for a mainframe collector, or some one-off tech trying to keep one alive.
The former aren’t going to pay much; the latter will pay the sky for a part they need but it’s rare for one to even be in operation today, and most techs that work on this age stuff would just make their own parts as replacements most of the time. So it could be a LONG wait to get a historical value on it.

That last board is core memory. Probably mid grade or peripheral for Boardsort depending on what the core wraps are made out of.

It’s also damaged
