I've been studying my C64Gs recently and they intrigued me. Does anyone
know the approximately dates when they were sold? One of mine has chips
from 1988, so they must have been among the first BN/E board computers
sold, whereas I thought they came much later.

The case seems to have been adapted from the C16; RF and H/L are the wrong
way round and slightly out of place, as is CASSETTE (which would have been
over the mini DIN socket in the C16). A further indication of this is that
the lettering for USER PORT is slightly taller than all the other markings
- this would indicate that it had been added to the mould later using a
slightly different character set. Does anyone else on the list have a C64G
to confirm these observations?

All in all, a rather good-looking machine. I've built some user port
network cables to run two (or more) of them in parallel for some audio
programs I'm designing.
