I can't believe my fortune from a collector and restorer standpoint. I recieved a box of stuff in the mail containing among other things the following:
Prototype HP 35 red dot case in the original tan shell. See the HP Museum photos for the HP 35 that Dave has posted. You can see the hole just to the right of the on off switch.
Heres the top shell inside view also showing how the hole actually resides in it's little rectangular frame:
The two shells showing the insides:
Here is a later model 35 for comparison. Note the smokey LED plastic lense and the lack of silk screened labels for the keyboard bezel. Maybe I will temporarily place a spare HP 35 with labelled keys in position and take a picture of it for posterity.
Included among NOS manuals for classics, flip cards for classics, voyager manuals, HP75B leather case and cards, Hp 65 nav pac and standard pack was this beautiful NOS HP 67 case for a future project. Completely unused!!!
The same benefactor sent me two NOS HP 15C badges for my two HP 15C restorations bringing them up to NOS appearance:
Well there is more including some scarce brochures and manuals which I will scan for the Museum.
Thats all for now, enjoy the pictures. Any body got a spare red dot that needs a new case??????????????????????
