Yes, it is converted back, as the US OS should say "Acorn OS 32K" in the
style of the B+. Probably go for a fortune, as some PPL think they're rare,
which is nice for the half dozen+ of them I've got sitting around the place.

Promotes it as an "Issue One" and "a lot heavier than later models".
I think they think it's an early one ....
But it looks like it's one of the re-converted yank ones - did they do
anything other than issue 1 on those boards? So quite late on, rather
than early. Interesting, historically, but not too special.
It'd have been nice to have another B with a factory fitted econet
interface, and I'd like a real speech synth to play with too, but it's
got a reserve on it, which means they think it's worth at least £50.
Way beyond my price range for "would be nice to have" stuff.
