Now that I've got a little collection going, I reached out to "the guys" at headquarters to see if they could give me more details from the serial numbers and they said, "Our records don't go that far back anymore, we lost some of the database." :roll:

If I remember right, the "database" was hand-written ledger books. Not surprised that a) they might have lost some from several decades ago, or b) couldn't afford to spend the hours and hours it could take to look up 4 old orders. Unfortunate either way, fur shur.
