AIM65 with unknown second board

Most often expansion boards that came from Rockwell are 6 1/4" x
4" and fit into the Rockwell AIM expansion chassis. I bet this
is a custom (?) XEROX prom monitor card adapted for the AIM 65.
The card would not fit in the Rockwell expansion chassis.

I have a lot of Rockwell hardware and documentation. If you send
me the part # of the board I can look it up to confirm.
