    Batch 7100, clear "skeleton" switch, "silver" screw. The circuit board bears the number 052-283B.
    Supposedly, this is from June '78 but it's definitely an early model. The model ran from Nov '77 to Nov '81 and was one of the first three Boss Compact pedal models produced.

    I might have started a new collection....

    I'll dig into it later, I have a ton of stuff on my plate for the next couple days and I need to try out that Reverb cable I ordered. I want to sit down and really compare my current Mooer 90 Orange against this vintage classic.

    It's dead.

    The buffer works because it passes signal when powered, but it doesn't turn on. Hopefully a little contact cleaner will do the trick. If not, further steps may need to be taken.
