Sometimes shining a light on a nuclear problem just makes things worse

OC71

I met, and cursed, the man at Mullard who changed the black paint on the OC71 to a black filling so you could not scrape the paint off and get an OCP71 (the photosensitive version). They sold the photosensitive version for a much higher price by leaving the paint off and relabelling them. A long time ago but I think 36 shillings and sixpence with no paint and nineteen shillings and sixpence painted! Bastards!
