Did we ever get word as to which 76 concert was considered for release in 1980?

IIRC, something from either June or October. Ultimately, material from June 1975 was a better choice.

"Did we ever get word as to which 76 concert was considered for release in 1980?"

I read that Joan Deary planned to make "best of 76" soundboard and that it was meant to be on "A golden celebration", not on the silver box.

I´ve read once that it would be used a complete concert from October 1976 or December of the same year......I don´t know if that´s true...

FECC: Which 1976 soundboard was considered for release on the 1984 Golden Celebration box set?

JOE: Several shows were under consideration for the soundboard from 1976 that Joan Deary wanted to use for the '' A Golden Celebration '' box-set. Two shows that may surprise some people are October 14, 1976 in Chicago, Illinois and December 29, 1976 in Birmingham, Alabama.
