Hmm... the J11 is rare and b'cause of it's good looking housing it is
heavily overpriced at ebay.
I have a spare one since I've upgraded my 11/73 CPU to 18 Mhz, but
how rare do you think is that rtVAX300? :-)

The russians are selling their K1801 and K1806 CPUs in Masses for cheap.
(I do have such CPU's) .. wrote that already sometimes before in cctalk..
