Hi Ed,

And thanks again for the parcel of transistors you sent, which arrived today. They're quite fascinating, and I'm especially tickled that the gold case type 12F, marked 3-62 were made two months after my birth!

I hadn't seen this thread before today, I actually ended up here doing a google search for data on the 35B, and this thread was top of the list.

All the best
