I have checked the original very faded circuit diagram and it does indeed
say 20.12.85 in the Change Level block

It did indeed and came with a set of Arthur 1.20 and RISC OS 2 development
ROMs. The RISC OS 2 ROMs only had 7 modules, the remaining modules were
loaded from disc. I can't find the status of the Arthur ROMs but again they
were a different build date from the production ROMs.

I really must try and dump the ROMs on the A500 co-processor, anyone
recommend an EPROM programmer/reader to do this?
