I am having trouble trying to figure out what you're referring to. The
Apple III followed-up the Apple ][+ in 1981. I've never heard of a IIIc
model. I've never heard of it being called the 3C (even as an internal
project codename; in fact it was codenamed "Sara" according to the book
_Apple Confidential_).
