PET 2001

Taking a break from all this VIC-IIe hysteria (and believe me, I am very
excited) I thought I'd share with you the latest find. It's mainly to ask
about PET ROM versions, as I'd like to place this machine in the PET
timeline. I've just been given (or rather CUCPS has just been given) an
English Commodore PET 2001-32N BS which is nice because I thought these
machines didn't exist in the UK.

It's not a rebranded "personal computer" 3032; it's an original "PET 2001
series". It has the shiny metallic nameplate sticker rather than the dull
matt black one that I have seen on all other UK PETs so far. It has the
typewriter keyboard, not the calculator keyboard and built-in datassette
drive of the very earliest PETs. What ROM variations could occur on this
machine, and how do I detect them?
