I had mentioned this in another thread, but figured I would move it to it's own topic in the hopes of having a bit more luck finding what I am looking for. Basically, I am looking for a non-working MOS 6502 to use in a small personal project. The reason I want a dead one is I plan on encasing it resin and I don't want to destroy a working chip. I had originally also wanted a TMS9900, the CPU from the TI-99/4A, the computer that got me started down this path. However I decided to just go with the MOS 6502 becasue even though the TMS9900 was where I started, the MOS 6502 is what dominated my childhood and teen years. The overall idea is I want to encase the chip in resin, with a small plaque that reads something like "The chip that powered the 1980's" or "The chip that powered my childhood.", you get the idea. Then I want to use an Arduino Nano controlled LED array behind it for some nice visual effects. I have almost everything I need, I have the idea mapped out, but I don't have a dead chip. If it comes right down to it, I can buy a modern 6502, but I really wanted an original MOS chip. Any ideas where I might find one would he helpful. I have done a lot of searching around, but it's proving much more difficult than I had hoped. Yes, I will share the project when I am done with it. Thank you!
