Connectors for the Commodore 64

Most of the port sockets on the C64 motherboard are now very difficult - if not impossible - to find new so those listed below will have been salvaged (carefully desoldered by myself and cleaned ready for refitting.) 

(The standard chip sockets are of course brand new.)
