Description

This object is clear plastic with a magnetic tape reel inside. A note included with this object reads "Enclosed is the cartridge for the Stringy Floppy. I did not find any info in the SJ Merc database (it only goes back to 1985). I think this product was from the 70's. If you can't use the drive and cart in the exhibit, I would like to have it back. Thanks, Bob."
