Picture of Astor FQZ

Note the use of the word 'EIGHT' on the lower panel. Older models like the 'FQZ' used a word for the designator, while later models used a numeral. Models like the 'P20R' only had the word 'TRANSISTOR' on the lower panel. At least 12 models were made with this layout and using this style of case.
