    I don't know... Curious to know the answer...
    If serial numbers are consistent with period production, this would place this one between mark I and mark II of A386 so I guess at the end of 69 / beginning of 70...?

    really really cool @luzer - it was a great idea to let you customise a crystal back. That eases the urge to find the correct case back. Well done. Wear your A386 with pride!

    I would order one.
    Maybe @luzer could organise the group order. If needed, we could pay in advance.
