Old RM doesn't know what he had. These are actually rare and sought after by hard core collectors...

Success is not a place in time, it is an attitude…

> Careful.  If the holes are filled with countersunk screws painted gray to match the front panel, then it's a transitional unit and it came from the factory that way.  For a while in the late 60s, Collins shipped them this way.  I've only seen this on the 75S-3Bs but it may have happened on other units too.
