Quote from: FabPhones on July 10, 2018, 12:11:43 PMMy line cord isn't the same colour so I checked the number underneath (see photo) which confirms mine was one of the 1981 first issues
Quote from: Owain on July 10, 2018, 02:53:44 PMThe date code sticker is 84 12 which suggests Dec 1984 as manufacturing date.
Quote from: FabPhones on July 10, 2018, 02:43:33 PMNot as many as some of you guys, but all the same I haven't dared to count. It took me decades to get my first 10, I had it totally under control until I discovered this site. I bought another display cabinet a couple of weeks ago (have filled it too), as no room was left in the display unit I made. I'll do a count up tomorrow and edit this post.

Quote from: andy1702 on July 11, 2018, 04:06:39 PMI'll go along with the date of Dec 84 as shown on the 'price tag' type sticker. But why does it say 'Made in England'? Surely that's not quite right somehow.
