Serial Number Lists
These lists came from the factory in May, 2001. There are three separate lists, and they overlap (and contradict)
each other. The last list is in a completely different format than the other two. There is a BIG gap form 1958 to
1981, so if anyone has some of that information please share it with me.
From "News Letter No. 430", dated April 7,
1958 and signed by A. H. Marzion,
Specification Department.
