That was the P500 series, aka the PET II, and it was never released apart
from a few samples to dealers before being canned because the C64 was doing
so well. The B500/B128 was the 'b'usiness version that didn't have colour or

The European P500 made in Germany is more common than the US made, er, US
one :) Highest serial number I've seen on a european one is 1763.
