        Not only would it be interesting to find out how many are
still out there, but also to determine just how many were made to
begin with. Given that quite a few of them started life as kits vice
assembled units though, I wonder if those were serialized at all.
For instance, your 69/K doesn't have the model#/serial# sticker on
the rear panel. Also, though mine is a later machine, likely
produced after mid 1980, it has a serial# of 004906.

        Too bad nobody has ever done a FAQ on the SWTPC or other
SS-50 bus machines.
