RE: Patrician 800 variation curious

It's almost certainly a factory Patrician 800. It looks like the EV cabinet and has the same drivers listed in the image mah posted (i.e. 30W, SP12D, T250 on 8HD horn, T350).

Last night I looked through old issues of the magazine Audio and found that this configuration was for sale for $875 in the August 1964 issue. Given that the 800 was introduced in January 1963 (from an EV ad in Audio, January 1963), I speculate that this is the first version and a second version was produced sometime after. Since I've spent so much time looking into this, I'm considering putting together a history of the Patrician line.

I got Audio PDFs from http://www.americanradiohistory.com/index.htm. This site mostly focuses on vintage radio publications but also has some great information for vintage audio buffs. Most of the issues of Audio are there (published 1947 to 1991).
