I have 4 of the 42 chips left.  I also found the original message from
the list archive, from January 1998.

Taking the shipping costs and the back-then exchange rate into account,
that'd be .67 FIM each, or .11 EUR.

I would like to keep one or two chips.  I have one unreliably working
NTSC VIC-20 circuit board, and I might want to convert one PAL VIC-20
to NTSC, like Pasi Ojala did.  So, Ruud, how many chips would you like
to have?
