Selling CPUs
In all cases the X is for a number

8086 class:

4004 White or grey ceramic
Pins can be gold or grey (palladium/silver)

4040 white or grey ceramic
Must be gold pins (see below)

800X/808X white grey or brown ceramic
Must have gold pins and gold cap (see below)

80186 white ceramic
Dip design (long rectangle)
Gold pins and cap

Z8 black grey or blue ceramic
Gold cap on top
Gold cap on bottom
Gold pins

Motorola c20 grey ceramic
Huge rectangle
Small gold cap
Gold pins
MUST be c20 only on single line

i80286/i803XX dual inline pin (dip)
Grey ceramic
Gold cap
Gold pins

386/486 class
Pin grid array PGA chips
Square Gold pins, gold cap underneath
Am47 (gold cap underneath see below)
Rapid CAD

Sparc (large square over 1.5 inches per side)
Sparc II
Sparc 32
Sun 32

Motorola-60 series CPUs
Huge long rectangles (dip)
Over 3 inches long
Gold cap on the centre top
Long gold trace down half of one side

Moto foreign gold caps
Fairly self explanatory has gold cap and gold pins.
Motorola CPUs (gold pins gold caps 68XX/68XXX)

Also most single cap AT&T of the thick top cap variety (bottom cap CPUs go in Cyrix IBM)

Other 486 era gold caps specifically for this class, and do not go as 486
St 486
Green chip
UFC 486/487
SGS-T 486/487/80c486
IBM nickel top gold cap bottom 486/i960
Am47 silver pin gold cap
Pentium overdrive single gold cap (remove fan)

Double gold cap CPUs
Gold pins two gold caps
Double cap 386/486 CPUs go as 8086 class
Double cap AMD am5XX CPUs go as 486
Basically this is the early pentium series, the i586 and i9XX series. Some AT&T CPUs
Sparc II
Sparc 64
Earlier ceramic PGA arm CPUs

The rare z80 with a silver cap and a gold cap can go here as well

Cyrix IBM Via gold caps
Also includes Texas Instruments (TI) CPUs
AT&T bottom gold caps
Zilog ceramics not mentioned above with a gold cap.

Palladium pin nickel cap CPUs of the 40XX and 80XX series Intel and AMD Am lines not mentioned above

Any black fibre CPU with a gold cap
All blue ceramics with a gold cap not mentioned above.

Any other gold gold cap CPU not mentioned above other than pentium pro (see below)

Pentium pro
MUST have gold cap!!!!!!
The ceramic and black fibre pentium pro CPUs go elsewhere

Pentium/MAC ceramics
Any ceramic CPU without a gold cap AND with gold pins except AMD and Cyrix

AMD ceramic
Any AMD or Cyrix CPU with gold pins, no gold cap, and no metal heat spreader

AMD aluminium cap
Any ceramic CPU with gold pins and a metal (aluminium, nickel, or tungsten) heat spreader

Black fibre CPUs
Any black fibre CPU with gold or silver pins with or without a nickel spreader

P4/Mac green brown fibre no metal
Generally self explanatory
The CPU is a colour other than black. It has no metal spreader
Also includes surface mount "flat pack" (QFP) chips with the gold trace corner

Green fibre with metal
This one is a bit convoluted
Any fibre CPU that is not black and has gold pins; and a metal spreader

Any bus port CPU (Mac processors, IBM power processors, sell servers). A bus port is a little larger than a credit card, has 1-3 CPUs (QFP) a ton of CMCs, and a large rectangular pin port (PGA)

Various other NOT quite slot processor designs

Pinless. Almost any CPU without a gold cap and without pins.

Slot processors
Look like finger cards
Are thicker than standard finger cards
The gold finger is longer than standard PCI/PCIe cards.
The finger is etched into two rows. (3 rows on some late Xeon boards)

Any ceramic chip with 6 or more gold pins not covered above goes in pentium/Mac ceramic

Any chip with 6 or more non-gold pins that's fibre or plastic goes in ICs

Any plastic chip with gold pins needs to be reviewed, post a picture

Any ceramic chip with 6 or more non-gold pins must be reviewed, post a picture

Hope this helps. Post questions about the list below. To ask about specific CPUs please use the what is it threads.
