Picture of Astor P8F

Note the use of the number '6' on the lower panel. Older models like the 'FQZ' used a word eg. 'EIGHT', for the designator, while later models like the 'P20R' only had the word 'TRANSISTOR' on the lower panel. Many models were made with this general layout and using this case style.
