SA800 went to the Smithsonian and the next one is in the office of Dave
MacDougal, the owner of WeirdStuff, Sunnyvale CA,

Maybe Shugart Corp. gave the one million minus one to Wang
Naah. There are NOT THREE one-millionth of the same drive.
The eBay one is one-millionth SA901?
The Smithsonian one is one-millionth SA-800?
The Weird Stuff one is One-million-and-oneth? SA-800?
One interesting anomaly is the SA900 series was
early-on replaced by the
SA800 series, although Wang may have bought them into the 1980s. So the
SA901 label is probably a publicity stunt.
Who has the one-millionth SA850? (I'd rather have double-sided!)
