Do you still have scans of the original pages that came with v4.20?
Yes, of course I kept a full scan. The stamped serial number is 059442.
The scanned manual that I have shows copyright dates of 1987, 1988, & 1989.
Yes, that is noted on the respective pre-page and most likely covers the product development as a whole.
The question however is, how many versions of the manual do exist.
If it's that rare, I wonder why Atarimania only lists it as rarity 7, which is for a boxed copy as well.
On what those "rarity estimations" are based is not clear to me. The first original version of SD(CS) I acquired was SDCS 3.2d and my hunt for earlier versions wasn't successful.
Maybe you're going by the stamp on the front of the manual, which is 12-88. But even inside the version that you worked on, the copyright dates are 1987, 1988, & 1989.
At least we have to bear in mind that the official status date is "12/88". This leaves some things open as there are:
- Were the printed manuals for V. 4,17 and 4.18?
- Were there updates in form of "red sheets" for V. 4.21?
- What was the real outcome of FTe's work done for V. 4.22 and is it documented somewhere?
