Any info is appreciated.

The 901B was in the 1992 catalog but by 1996 it had disappeared from the catalog. I think one can extrapolate that they were not popular and there are not a Billy blue ton of them floating around out there.

It was probably the breeze from Kentucky from back in his Evansville days. It stimulated his erudition and made him a logophile.

I don't know how rare they are. I had one years ago. No clue where it may be now.
