This thread reminded me that I recently got shipped what the person told me
was a CDC 6000 Central Memory core.
(it matches what's on this page : ).   He told me that
the console looked like this :

I got it along with a box other parts (mostly Sun things) and a single
"plane" of core memory from another module.
(It connects the 6000 to the Sun 1's that I picked up in the past... some
interesting history...good "over a beer" stories :-) )

I'm coming to VCF MW this year so if there is interest, I can bring it
