Description

The record contains 28 TX-0 plug in bottle transistor modules. The modules are made up of 2 parts. There is a pin socket with either five or seven pins. There are various components soldered to the circuit side of the sockets. There is also a clear plastic bottle that screws onto the socket and encapsulates the soldered components.
Eight of the bottles have five pin sockets with 1 transistor soldered to the inside of them. These 8 bottles have a paper label with a "T-#" number. The paper labels are covered by clear tape. The numbers present are 18, 43, 91, 93, 94, 95, 96, and 97. The bottle labled "T-94" also has "S9" handwritten on it. The bottle labeled "T-18" has a paper tag attached. The tag reads, "4-26-61" and "removed from S27 A16 LRC3; T18 out T6 in."

Eight of the bottles have seven pin sockets with 2 transistor, 2 resistors, and 1 capacitor soldered to the inside of them. These 8 bottles have a paper label with a "C-#" number. The numbers present are 117, 116, 123, 122, 121, 120, 119, and 118.

Seven of the bottles have five pin sockets with 1 transistor and 2 resistors soldered to the inside of them. The transistors are have a numbred peice of cloth tape on them. The numbers present are 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, and 10.

Three of the bottles have five pin sockets with 2 transistors soldered to the inside of them.

Two if the bottles have five pin sockets with 3 transistors soldered to the inside of them.
