I don't have my disassembled one on hand, but comparing the rear labels it (from an old time stamp) to my complete one and they appear to be different revisions.

I have yet to receive one that still has a front sticker/badge, I assume Unitek worked as an OEM and various other companies could slap their own logo on top, but I'm going to try to get some metal badges made and need some inspiration.

Sorry for derailing this thread, I'm ordering some DIN sockets  and will get a convertor made whenever they can arrive.

Cool, it is in really good shape too.

I have never seen one with a sticker or badge at all myself, lol. I wonder if they designed the case and already had the tooling and just went, "... eh, screw it." If you get any badges made, I would love to hear about it, and maybe get in on that order. You could try to recreate IBM's metal badges. It looks close enough to an F AT for it to fit in well enough.
