Hello Bil and everyone else,

The TED prototype was found in the basement at a former PET reseller's house 
in Sweden, among with about 50-100 PET machines, floppy drives, a few hard 
drives and much more. Several of the cbm-hackers members got their fair 
share of my findings. While some of the PET stuff were relatively uncommon 
(e.g. four D9060 hard drives), none of it was ultra-rare except for this TED 
prototype board.

It was found on a shelf, resting in the bottom half of a C64 breadbox shell 
but not screwed into it. At first when I looked at it, I thought it simply 
was yet another C64 motherboard but saw it was much smaller and had 
different chips associated with the TED line. I never quite asked how it 
ended up there, and likely I would never had got a good answer. Possibly it 
ended up there as some other Commodore development group closed down, or it 
was found to not be working.

Best regards

Anders Carlsson
