[Coco] OT: 63B09

The processor is not for the COCO. I am debugging a radio controller that has a 63B09P in it. I found a ?NTE6809 which has the exact same
Pinout, but the crystal does not oscillate when I insert it into the MCU socket, but The old one does. I am wondering if this means the NTE6809 is DOA. It was NOS in the bag when I got it.
I need to know if the problem is a compatibility issue between the NTE6809 and the HD63B09P or is it just that the NTE6809 is bad.
I don't have any persoal experience with MCUs of this vintage, and since the COCO uses a similar MCU I thought I would ask here.

For the coco, you need to one with the xxx09E designation, indicating it
uses an external clock and crystal.
