In the early nineties, Ohio-based Craig H. acquired CT-100 B8001338 from a west coast collector. The set was in working order. Craig, who later sold it to Murray, estimated 20 total hours of total on-time in the dozen years of his guardianship. Craig shipped B8001338 back to the west coast to Steve who restored the set in 2005. Congratulations Murray. Efforts such as this are a bulwark against the loss of our television heritage.
