Do you recall where that board with the gold cap came from? Trying to find one myself

I don't think the gold legs raise them out of the normal ic rate, but that gold cap, is what, via? That's about 8x as valuable

Assuming you desolder and remove them...
Gold legs plastic probably green fibre
Ceramics amp or pentium Mac ceramic
And gold caps as per proper classing. Here I believe 8086 or Motorola/foreign.

I believe that is a general instruments frequency controller. But I’m pulling from archaic half memories. Would put it in moto foreign most likely.

Get back into the 70s and you’ll find gold cap chips all over the place.
I found 2 dozen (literally 24) in my father’s old 70s tuner amplifier. Quite a few Atari power systems, big giant blocks that were dual or trip voltage with a small switch on the side, have a gold cap IC in it. So does the original C64 brick; but those can fetch up to $50 on ebay so ignore the gold cap inside. Lol

Table top radios with the vacuum lcd displays often have gold caps.

I cautiously mention 70s era video tape players. Many have gold caps. But please please please (from a collector’s and enthusiast’s standpoint) if it even remotely look like what it is don’t scrap it! Sell it or donate it. There’s so few left it’s more a historical need for them. Totally doa they provide parts badly needed. More so for the Beta lines than VHS but despite minimal “junk” value they are highly sought after.

Some TVs from the late 70s and early 80s. The also early rear projection TVs are known to have them.

Minicomputers from the 70s. Terminal units for mainframe and mini-C access.
Cars with early digital cruse control systems all used the same gold cap WE or FMC chips.

Just look for old, and broken.
