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 two 5 1/4-inch floppy-disk drives, located slightly off-center, to the left, on the black part of the front panel. 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 two 5 1/4-inch floppy disks, found inserted into the floppy-disk drives (apparently to protect the drive heads). One disk has a partly removed white adhesive label with no remaining writing. The other disk has a gray edged adhesive label with the hand-written notation, "OS=CPM-86 1.1, I/O=2.4, Keyboard=DOMESTIC03" and the additional hand-written notations, on the manufacturer's label, "W/CPM-80, CPM 86 MASTER."
