The one with three sockets...where does this grade?

How about the one with the gold cap chip? Can I pull the fingers without changing the grade? Is there too much missing already?

Nice boards! Top one if you pull the gold capped chip it will be telco, not sure if having one gold chip is enough to make it a gold capped chip board
Wait for lostinlodos on this one, I'd say it's safe to cut the fingers, but just wait until he comes in and double checks.
Bottom, telco or maybe small multi socket motherboard. Looks more like telco though.

Rcm is correct on the top board, but the bottom most should go as large multi socket... The old x286/386 boards are considered large socket... Their is a chance they may give you telecom because those are high value board... Since it is loaded with chips you might have a good chance!

They are both 286 boards.

The top one had a no-pin 286, the bottom had pinned versions. I think this one is pretty heavy, so I didn't want to downgrade it by cutting fingers.

I'll have to weigh the bottom one to decide if I shot myself in the foot on the gold finger removal.

ah, i missed the 286 socket earlier, but i see it now... They will most likely still give you telecom for it with or with out the fingers. They don't give upgrades to motherboards for having fingers or not, so you are better off trimming them.

The top one remove the CPU it's 8086/8088
The board is telco
Fingers can come off if you want

Bottom is at least large multi socket, but think it will clear telco.

Ohkay just read the reply. Non socketed CPU

You've got a gold cap chip board then. Can still cut fingers.
