I thought of making a really detailed inventory of my own. Including all ic numbers and date codes too. All my vics have c64 style keycaps too but the board under the key caps varies alot.

WGA 6328

PAL, DIN-style PSU lead, heavy and noisy keys which I assume are PET–style. Made in Germany. Badge isn't metal and reads "VC-20".

EDIT: Mindlessly posted. It's formerly been a 2-prong PSU – the motherboard has been switched. m)

I can't believe I never listed my oldie here...

V007829 - NTSC with PET style keyboard; internal removable mods include JiffyDOS and S-Video.

I hid the JiffyDOS switch inside the cartridge port and used thermal glue so it can easily be removed if needed.

The S-Video mod was done by using another 6560 and bending the chroma pin so it too can easily be restored to original config.

The original 6560 is dated 2281.

I do think the Denial Wiki is still the best place for this information, rather than a third-party repository.
I'm sure there's some sort of spreadsheet like / table markup language for Wiki pages.
You might even be able to import spreadsheet data straight into a Wiki table, so all the data could be entered into and maintained in Excel/OpenOffice and then placed in the article. Here are some instructions:

An easier way that another Wiki does it:

https://wiki.ucar.edu/display/confluenc ... +wiki+page

There are all sorts of instructions online.

That seems to be the same document linked to a couple of pages back in this thread.

@Killahurtz
... even better than jigowatz (usually 1.21)

V006018 is even lower than my proud 7829 !!

Very early VIC !

Mine too has these round blue stickers on most large chips.
