I ended up with several boxes of parts from a local collector who was selling off his Atari stuff. In one of the boxes, I came across these 800XL shields marked "Rev. B Submission 1" and "1st article." It also says "Wing Hang (Atari, H.K.)."

As I understand it, these would have been samples sent from the factory so that someone could check tolerances and make sure everything was correct with the manufacturing process.

Are these of any historical interest?

That's pretty cool.  Without those little tags, you would never know what you had.  They definitely belong in a museum.
