Hi Rene, Thanks for making the survey, I look forward to your analysis. Here is my submission. No marking on the on/off lever.

Thanks for that! Yours is the second-earliest that I have documented so far.

Winner winner, chicken dinner!

There’s a story behind it, which I will tell eventually. Might be rare rare rare, might be bald-faced fraud, might be something in between...

I sure want to hear that story. I'm hard-pressed to imagine Columbia putting together and shipping out a Type N long after the Type A was in production. I can imagine a couple of very tenuous scenarios (scenarii?) but I don't know if they align with the story.

Here are two.

How about an Electric one - 43402 - nothing on switch.

And a coin-op one - 44970 - (no switch :D )
