They came from Toad Computers in the USA. Before they were at Toad, Atari Corp had shipped the full systems from a warehouse in California to a company to destroy them. This company crushed the cases, but sold the motherboards. I believe that B&C obtained the TT motherboards.
I obtained them from Toad in late March of 98, and went thru testing all of them (hence the date written on the VME shield/shelf in sharpie) and slowly sold the stockpile of them off.
Can you share what all the ills of the board were? Just curious.
