BASF LH-X I - 1982 - US
Very well made and as good as any contemporary. BASF provided bulk tape to many duplicators at the time this cassette was in production, so you can be assured of the quality. This is a better tape than its counterpart, the LH-E I. BASF describes this tape as a high standard Type I tape good for a wider range of acoustical frequencies... in other words, a super-ferric tape?
Note: This is a VERY RARE BASF cassette. You can hardly even find them "used", let alone sealed.
Contain SM Security Mechanism (Please do your research on SM, some cassette users open these tapes and remove the SM parts). Made in Brazil with tape made in Germany and assembled in accordance with BASF specifications. Made for the American continent.
Note: No mistake made on the 60 Minutes cassettes. These have the "The Bay" stores price sticker on them. The "Eaton's" store price sticker (very last picture, after the 90 Minutes), is even Rarer and very sought after due to its past iconic presence in the high-end market of Canadian Department retail stores. It makes this "Eaton's" item (tape) even more expensive. Eaton's is a well-missed brand of stores in Canada. SOLD OUT!
