Description

There is a 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch name label near the lower, right-hand corner of the front panel, with the name "Victor" printed in white on black, except for the "O", which is printed as the banded, orange-yellow, Victor "planet & moon" logo. This unit has one 5 1/4 inch floppy drive. "B" is printed in white on a blue DYMO-tape label under the floppy disk drive door. The case has two cylindrical molded studs, approximately 1/4 and 3/8 inches in diameter and approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch tall, protruding from the middle of the top panel, where shadowing suggests that a monitor was located.. The unit includes a 5 1/4 inch floppy disk, found inserted into the floppy-disk drive (apparently to protect the drive heads). The disk has a green edged adhesive label with the hand-written notation, "spline-9000 contains all guide vanes."
