This auction is for a:

SAM Coupé Interface Case 

Black - Mould Test from 1989


This auction consists of a test moulding in black plastic of the case used by MGT for their SAM Coupe interfaces.

In 1989 when the plastic moulds were made for the SAM Coupé Interface boxes a small run of test cases were made

in black plastic, to check the moulds and sizes were all correct. This was before the large production run

which was later carried out in white plastic for all the final interfaces from MGT, such as the Comms interface etc...


I was lucky to be passed the test cases many years ago which I had kept as part of my own SAM collection. However,

I am now selling a couple of them to raise proceeds to fund all my ongoing SAM Coupe projects. 


This auction consists of the main case body, with the opening for the Euroconnector, plus three end pieces: One solid, one

with a slot cutout (as used in the MGT & SAMCo external disk drive interfaces) and one with a cutout for a 26pin header and 9 pin D

(this was the test for the Comms Interface - however the holes are in the wrong positions - good job they did a test run so

this mistake could be corrected before the main production run!)

I'll also include two new screws for the case.


It's a novel collectors item for any SAM Coupe fan! 

To either have as a collectors piece or to actually re-case an interface you may have to make it more unique!


Thanks for looking! Let's keep the SAM going for another 25 years!

Quazar - Celebrating 21 Years of Developing for the SAM Coupé!
