Although I didn't have time to open up my two-prong with a serial number in the range of 6000, I can't recall ever seeing the early NTSC type motherboard on a PAL VIC before. I have read in then contemporary magazines that the PAL 6561 chip was quite delayed, which means it took a while between the US launch and the European one, and that availability at first was much less than demand. Could it be so that Commodore at first adopted the NTSC motherboard (clock etc) to PAL, and while waiting for chips they redesigned the board so the number of units with the older board were very few as the new board got ready in time for when they could start shipping computers?
