I am going to eventually frame my first Apple 1 Board and want to place it along side it a cassette interface, I want the interface to look as period as the Mimio board, however Mikes board has his logo where the NTI logo should be; does anyone produce a near perfect copy of the original?

I'm not sure how this compares, but have you seen the one from Mike Newton? He was posting here awhile ago, maybe you could see if he still has any?

It looks pretty good to me, although from the picture, unless it's the camera/lighting, I think the colors are brighter so it might look different next to a mimeo?

Re: Apple 1 - Cassette Interface

Hello Clint,
the differences result from the fact that the MIMEO is a remake of the so called "pre-NTI" board,
While the Newton NTI is a remake of the "NTI" board.

Re: Apple 1 - Cassette Interface

As far up to my knowledge Mike has sold last boards from that batch at ebay before christmas 2013.
Only possible advice: Mike is here present with nickname NewtonMike
probably best idea: send him a pm and ask him....

I did try messaging him a couple of times last year but no replies.

The Newton ACI boards have the logo "NGM" instead of "NTI"

Re: Apple 1 - Cassette Interface

That "MNG" one is from the very first batch, the second batch (actually a small sample batch) has NTI mark and made from white material. I still have a few left. The same shown in some of the photos of my ended listing.
