Motorola CPU

Well I've been digging in my pile of boxs again and came up with a box of new Motorola CPUs part # PC68O4ORC-A. I would think that this means its a 40MHz CPU. Am I correct??. Some have heatsinks some do not, all are new. There is another set of numbers and they are 14D43B and under that is DEYM9102 and of course it says USA EBYMD. Anybody have a clue??. The box has a UK address on it. The cpu has a lot of gold pins in it, been thinking about snipping them off and putting them in my bowl of gold.

You definitely don't want to be snipping the pins off for their "gold" value. What you have are good old-fashioned 68040 processors like those found in the Macintosh Quadra series of computers. Generally, people that have machines with 68lc040 processors will buy the full 68040 to place in their FPU-less machines.

The 68040 is a full processor with integrated FPU (Floating Point Unit).

The 68lc040 is a 68040 processor without the FPU. Apple typically put 68lc040 processors in their lower end 040 based machines.

You will probably not have much trouble selling these processors if they are the full 040's.
