I found this little nice radio in NOS/overhauled condition.
It says "Associated Industries" on the plate and has no typical US government contract number. Inside cover on the frame it has another manufacturer name "CINCIN ELECT 80045". Paint color looks quite modern to me. All internals look original and not changed but some parts still have FSN number what dates them back to early 1970's.
What do you think? Is it in original condition form 70s or early 80s including paint and manufacturers plate or was it overhauled at sometime, even for another country's army?
Does PRC-77's had their own unique serial numbers (independent form manufacturer) or there is any possibility to say when it was made?
