Hi Bob ---- I assume, because of your reference to the Bond chips on eBay, that I am one of the "chip police" referred to in your message (I prefer the neighborhood watch, analogy, but will live with the sometimes perjoratively used "police" title if I must). I have not yet received my copy of the new magazine, though the supplemental convention auction flyer arrived today, so I haven't seen the ad to which you referred.
I am also at a disadvantage here, as I am not really familiar with the Borland fake story, having read only a few brief references to it. Perhaps you could, as suggested by Tom Stroh, provide background information on the subject.
Also, are the chips in the ad clearly identified as "fakes"; or at least identified as "Borland chips" (which would, presumably, identify them as fakes to knowledgeable collectors)? Do these chips have independent value as collectibles even though they are fakes (that is, do the circumstances of their manufacture make them separately collectible)?
Thanks for any information you can provide. ----- jim o\-S
