Mystery Am-1780 and C-2298.
   (Ver 2)

 

A while back I obtained a strange looking Am-1780 and C-2298. These do not have the the characteristic skirt around the front of the panels. You will see that there is only a very small molding at the corners instead.

Please have a look and see if you can recognise whether this is a pre-production model, an early model or something else?

These boxes have even stumped the intercom experts on the yahoo "mvintercom" group. No-one has seen their like before.

Does anybody know what these are?

From Charles in the USA comes the following:

Your mystery am1780 and c2298 are just that...the earliest version that I've seen in a while. When they first came out they didn't have the lip around them..that was added after a lot were mangled by big footed crewmen.

So, thanks to Charles, another mystery solved.
