today I received a packet that contains my latest Ebay find. It's a 
collection of different CSG/MOS-ICs, mostly Amiga stuff, maybe leftovers 
from a repair shop. But there are also some C64 chips among them (sadly 
no SIDs).

One of them stands out, it's a (working) CPU for the C64 with the 
following markings:

6510 CBM
4392 16

I thought the 6510 was replaced with the 8500 around 1986/87? Or did MOS 
just stamp '6510' on a 8500 for people who insisted on the 6510?

The whole bag of chips was only 30 Euros. If only a quarter of them 
work, it's still a bargain. :)
