The main differences are:
* Power supply is 9V AC only on the first, the CR has the C64 Power
connector and hence has 5VDC and 9VAC available
* memory is changed from 2114 (1k x 4bit) chips to 6116 (2k x 8bit) chips

That's as far as I can remember was visually different.

I have some very poor pictures of the two boards (captured from video tape -
no digital camera), they are at home, so if I remember I can email thm

In fact I took pictures of every motherboard type in my Commodore
collection. If such pictures are not already available on funet I can send
them through (quality is not perfect though).
