Serial number is a handwritten "45" with what looks like a stamp next to it that reads "1K". Small top control panel with 2 inputs, chickenhead on/off/volume, a red light, and a 2 amp fuse holder. I got this amp when my uncle passed and have used it a little just to get to know it. It even has an extra bulb fastened to the rear removable panel.
The EIA code will consist of 3 numbers followed by a date code of 3 or 4 numbers designating the year and the week.If it’s a one digit year you need to determine the correct decade of the amp some other way.ZZ = a number from 1 – 52 indicating the week of the year.To give an example, a typical Oxford speaker from the ’60s will look something like: 465-217.465 designating the Oxford EIA code, 2 designating the year 1962, and 17 designating the 17th week of ’62.
