What does that mean, that manufacturing took place in Japan, or was the
C16 or any of its predecessors sold there before it was released in the
Western world? By the way, exactly which models were ever released, and
when? As far as I know, only three models went into production: C16, C116
and Plus/4 in the summer of 1984. The 264, 364, 232 etc appear to be more
of prototypes, displayed around January 1984.

However on another forum, a while ago I had a discussion with an otherwise
very knowledgable gentleman (who perhaps is on this list? ;-) who claimed
he could buy any TED machine he wanted in Canadian stores all through the
late fall/Christmas of 1983. He was very insistent that he did not mistake
it by one year.

Hopefully you forwarded the last set of image links.

Regarding if this is a repair shop experiment, the board looks very
professionally well made for being a hobbyist hack. Every component is
even labeled. Maybe hand written P19 means prototype run #19?
