im sure this is totally off topic of Homebrewing but i might as well ask here i got an odd system in teh mail ( a 2600) and i wanted to see if someone could explain this to me.
Heres the finding
1st the boards are very simular.
2nd The board on the heavy 4 ( odd one ) is with little L's on the back all over the back and has 2 ink marks ( my other one dont have anything like that) . one mark is 212 and another is 2B.
3rd the back is where i see a big difference.
on the noraml looking 4 switch wood. it says on the back:
on the abnormal one is
C015519 ( with a A at the end which looked like it wasnt engraved with the rest might have been carved after when it might have been redesigned. if so. ) also
271 under the date
Abnormal looking Normal looking one
