Much to my surprise, it didn't sell at all (although a number of other lots,
likely from this machine, did.)

I'm rather puzzled that an -11/70 will sell for north of $10K, while a /780
can't fetch $5K. I can only guess that PDP-11'S are seen as more important in
the collector world (even though the BSD work, which had such a huge impact on
UNIX, which has now - in the form of Linux - taken over the world, was
centered on the VAX).
