Can anyone help me sort this out? I was looking at an R13 on craigslist. The owner gave me a serial number 121555 and said that the instrument was approx. 40 years old. When I put that serial number in the Buffet website it says it is a BC1102-2 and was manufactured in 1999. What does the 1102-2 mean and what additional information do I need from the owner to get this figured out?
Thanks!

The R-13 you're looking at is indeed 40 years old, it was made in 1971. The information the Buffet website gave you is for an E-13 (whose serial number is supposed to have a "K" prefix but the Buffet site doesn't recognize those).

Thanks...that's a huge help! (A little confusing on Buffet's part?) I wanted to make sure it actually is an R13 before I think about buying it.
