Ok, for some reason I had in mind that this was a drum. I actually have
that drive in my collection. Yours is in WAY better shape though. I
think mine sat outside in the elements for a while before I got it.

It makes sense, since the drive was manufactured by Librascope-General
Precision (i.e. LGP). I found some marketing literature for it while
going through some documents at the Computer History Museum a while back.
I can make a copy for you if you like.
