RE: HP 41c STAT 1 module version 1A
Ok, the 1A looks the same as the 1B. I've never seen a pre-production module so didn't know they were substantially lower quality.

I guess the Service Manual is "lying" then :-).

If you have a pre-production module you can share a photo of that would be great.

Given the Service Manual extract above it sounded like 1A was never released for sale. Maybe it was made for the 41c release but too many bugs were discovered and it was never sold? The PPCJ was a release announcement so would have been prepared before the release so may not have been the STAT module that actually went on sale.

Well, you have the 1A module, you tell us - does it look like a production module, with sonic-welded case seems, production level lettering, engraved date code (what is the full code?), etc. If it has all these elements, then it very likely was a production unit that was sold. Early pre-production modules typically were hand-glued, with crude labels, no date codes engraved, etc.
