Indeed my APO 180/4 is chipped. Thanks to Erik's masterwork as a wizard, I'd like to add.

The 180APO has that "brittle" - nicely detailled and sharp yet rounded and smooth rendition - I came to associate with the first generation of ED lenses. My large-format 270mm f/6.3 ED T-Nikkor has exactly the same behaviour and was a much used and loved lens on my view cameras back in the dark ages of film.

I do have a small set of CPUs left, but they are dedicated to any further project that might occur. The opportunity of buying factory parts from Nikon has all but gone these days as well with all the reorganising of the Nikon subsidiaries taking place.
