I may qualify being old enough 8-)
I do not have any FS images anymore, butonce we needed to extract
Motorola monitor sources for an M88K system from Versados floppies.
I have still the extraction tool lying around from 1987. You can have it,
if it helps - maybe just for comparision. That tool was able to dig out
the files we needed and that was all we tested.
