I know it's hard to give a price on such a fine item. :lol: I think I'll see if I can find an old computer to run them on. 8) 5-1/4" floppies.

I worked for a company in the 80's that made machines that polish and put floppies in their envelopes. 5-1/4" and 8" floppies. They spun the discs and used a air knife to push the floppies into 3m burnishing tape, 1.5 micron tape to be exact. You could polish metal to a mirror finish using it.
