Well, I finally heard back from that guy who claims to
have the "1084 that displays colour when hooked up to
both a NTSC *and* a PAL C64"... here's what he says:

So, anyone have a 1084 made around this time?
What are your serial numbers like?

Mine has two stickers on the back...

one reads:
Model NO.1084S-P 120VAC 50/60Hz 75W  CSA LR58447

the other:
Color Monitor Model No. 1084S-P
120 VAC 60Hz 1 AMP 75W
July 1990  Serial No. 199414

Strange that it says 50/60Hz on one, and just 60Hz
on the other, no? :)
