On the subject of Rs and detail, this may also apply to the J model.  

The mech cover of mine is cracked at the top screw, where they all are.  
I was noticing that the medallion on my mech cover was stuck in place 
with something resembling tar.  Black, void-filling glue.  Managed to 
very carefully saw through the goo with dental floss and free the emblem
in order to work on the mech cover.  

But, I've seen others, and have a J emblem (the red one) that appear to
have been fastened with four screws or rivets through holes in the corners
of the emblem.  I think the ones without holes look a bit classier.  Any
one know the story here?  Are some of them early aftermarket repros or 
did Seeburg change the design and if so which are earlier?
