I believe this can be done by collecting a sufficiently large sample of
serial numbers and related information. Hopefully, I will be able to
divine the numbering convention and thereby come up with a reasonable
estimate of total production. This, of course, assumes that the units were
serially numbered.

        Mine is 5100WT # 13352, (BA101), and the tape drive is 5106WT #31965.
