Cassion - AX1 ~1985 - CA
Imported for Canadian Retails Stores (Woolco, Zellers, etc) circa 1985. Cassion was made in Japan at some point, but it is not clear when these may have been made outside of Japan. So until, we find proof these were made elsewhere, these will be deemed to have been made in Japan.
These actually seem to be rather well put together. The tape is smooth and shinny, but I've seen better. The pancake cut is rather good which is often an indication of decent manufacturing quality procedures and standards. I have not been able to actually test it.
Note: Only one available! These are scarce but not super rare.
