    cool! I just took some out of the "Memory cartridge" form some old calculators too. I'm guessing that's the Rom the game resided on maybe? If you get a buyer please PM me as well. not that I probably have more than a couple.....

    Nice picture....very pretty chip.

    Here is the link (see below) for an EPROM parts supplier selling the same chip shown in your picture.
    Price: $6.45/chip (not per pound)

    Link: http://www.futureelectronics.com/en/...001-80XF1.aspx

    The webpage indicates he has about 800 in stock, so I imagine these chips must have multiple applications that are still relevant (otherwise, why stock so many?)

    I found another link for a different supplier selling a closely related EPROM chip (part #M27C4001-12F1 vs your part# M27C4001-80XF1)
    Price: $7.69/chip
    LInk: http://www.alliedelec.com/search/pro...x?SKU=70014186

    I hope this helps to give you some ball-park pricing reference points.

    Any luck selling your eprom mr metal? I have about 20 of them but they do look a little different then yours. It appears in your picture that the little square under the window is gold and the part around that is silver. On mine the little square is silver and the part around it is gold. Am i seeing things in your pic? I may have to go back thru my bucket im pretty sure i have a several like the one in your pic.

    That is not a gold window IC chip. Just a standard ceramic IC.

    I think the gold ones are kind of like the gold cap processors with it having a cap.

    Yes, I do believe that those shown in the picture are not gold cap in the middle. My buddy runs a traveling video game exhibit with 100s of old school games and he had me zap some of those chips with UV light for him since those windows when exposed to UV erase the memory of the chips and them them be reset in the game software somehow.

    90 some odd dollars I believe and they were the ones from the pic I posted. I haven't listed the actual gold ones yet.
