I am always keen to acquire systems including but not limited to:

Data General Nova (especially Nova 4X, 4C)
Data General Eclipse (especially S140 5 Slot)
Data General MPT Series (microNOVA CPU) MPT/85, MPT/87, MPT/100 and Enterprise
Data General microNOVA MP/100, MP/200
Data General Desktop Generation Model 10, Model 20, Model 30 or Model 40
Data General MV Series (all)
GE Calma (DG Based) Systems

Data General Peripherals (Disk, Tape, Winchester and SCSI)
Data General Terminals (6012, Dasher, etc)
Data General Cabling (Bulkhead and Paddle board cabling etc)

Spectra Logic Controller (SMD/Pertec) for Data General Systems
Zetaco Disk/Tape Controller (SMD/Pertec/SCSI) for Data General Systems
