Item History and Pricing
The 1675 we have here is a fine example of a great reference that had a very long production run (for good reason!) It is a 5.3 million serial, which puts it around 1978. Please see full details below, and please let me know if you have any questions at all, or would like any additional photos as I would be more than happy to assist.
