This is an A440 (the original 1987 version), and possibly the 2nd one off the line?

Hi

My BBC Master has the serial number 01-AMB15-0258330.

The keys on this computer is different to the Masters I see on eBay. Another poster said their Master had a "Cherry keyboard". Is this what I have? When were these introduced and are they "eBay R@RE"?? (not that I'm thinking of selling!

(picture attached)

Thanks

JR

My A420/1

Serial: AKB40 1 000973 (which I believe indicates A410 range)
Model: A420/1 (so it says on the front panel)
Spec: 4mb RAM and Rodine R03065 53mb hard disc = A440/1

Hilarious. They don't make them like they used to!

Ok, here is my current collection of serial numbers:

03-ANB01-3075652 BBC B Issue 7
07-ANB01-3757088 BBC B Issue 7
07-BLA01-0103540 Electron
12-ALA11-1023392 Plus 1
04-ALA13-0102592 Plus 3
01-AMB15-0114954 BBC Master 128
01-AMB15-0102000 BBC Master 128
03-ANC01-1009467 6502 Second Processor
-AND51-0100043 Winchester Disc 110
01-AKB64-1011980 A4
27-AKB40-1001091 Archimedes 420/1
27-AKB15-1018414 Archimedes 305

The Archimedes 305 does not start-up currently and has seen quite some modifications (4MB ram extension, new MEMC, ARM3, HD Floppy interface), I am not 100% certain it is a 305. The front says 310 but I also found a separate one with 305 on it. The previous owner liked to re-label.

The Winchester serial seems incomplete (see photo). I wonder how many of those were made.

Archimedes labels were readily available back in the day, usually if you bought a hard disc or second disc drive you were provided with a set of labels to chose from.

The serial gives it away though, AKB15 suggests your compter left the factory as an A310, the serial for an A305 would start with AKB10.

Thanks Steve, I guess the serial is the most reliable identification. It is still a mystery to me where the separate 305 front comes from, most likely it was taken from another Archimedes. It seems unlikely that someone would "downgrade" their Archimedes with label indicating a 305 without HD...
