Does anybody have a wp made by AES?

In the late 70's, they were experimenting with voice recognition for 
their systems. We were a nearby DEC Components OEM and had a hundred or 
so LSI11/23 modules in stock.  They sent an engineer over to our plant, 
took out the whole stock, and replaced the 13.824 MHz clock crystal 
module with the output of a function generator to see how high they 
could overclock it to get the response they needed for voice 
recognition. I think they bought the 4 or 5 that passed diagnostics with 
the highest clock speed, somewhere near 40 MHz IIRC.
