Atari 5200 Serial Numbers / Timeline

Recommended Posts

I’ve been meaning to post mine for a long time. I have 6 or 7 units now, and I’ve restored and resold a few over the years. I’ll get those posted at some point. 
 

This one, I received a few years ago in a CL pickup in my area. It currently boots up to a black screen,  but it’s slated for a RAM replacement soon! Other than that, it’s in fine cosmetic condition. Serial 0004611, made sometime between August 30 to September 5, 1982.

4 port SN:0053507 SV-073

So a Sunnyvale 7th week of 1983?

 

Came from a repair shop missing top lid, U15, U6, ROM, U4, Port 4 Right Angle Connector, 4 port switch box, power supply.

 

Meeh it was free.

My 5200 arrived yesterday. It was rebuilt and restored by @-^CrossBow^- and you can read about what he did here. I am very happy to have bought the console from an AtariAge user because of the love and care and craftsmanship that went into the restoration. It's a 4 port UAV modded 5200 and looks and works great.

From a four port 5200 found in an old shed.

Nice barn find! That looks like an early 1983 El Paso unit, manufactured in January of that year.

This is the Frankentari - it's a 4-port shell with a 2-port motherboard in it.  Got it as a freebie a little over a year ago along with a few cartridges.  Haven't powered it up yet so have no idea if it's working or not, and need to find an RF cable and a couple of controllers to go with it.  Might open it up tomorrow and see if it was a POKEY organ donor 😉

I don't have a pic yet, but one of my 4 ports is prefixed SV-462. My other one is an AT-223. Both are original stock. I have a third one around somewhere, but I need to dig it out.
