I have a C64, s/n 2330 made in the USA, with these same logos. I assume all
the early production machines had this labeling. The interesting thing
about my machine is a motherboard that is populated with numerous ceramic
ICs, you may want to crack yours open when you get time. I had posted
pictures of my machine some time ago while researching it. The photos can
be found at:


I wouldn't bother if you don't have broadband, I left them in their native
4.1MP resolution and the files are quite large.
