Condition

B
System is in excellent condition but shows signs of age. Missing paint on top ring around swtiches and some minor damage to wood panel on front is apparent. Stickers are in excellent condition and complete and unfaded.

Notes

System is a "Heavy Sixer" which has a thicker plastic body on the base of the system which adds significant weight over later 6-switch models. These systems were manufactured exclusively in Sunnyvale, CA.

This unit was the personal VCS of Harold Lee, an employee at Atari who was responsible for designing the integrated circuit used in the home Pong consoles.
