I'm local to you, I'd be happy to re-home them.

m0cemdave,

Thanks for the Serial Numbers.
The 7/85 sticker is almost certainly the Manufacture Date of the Meter,
which fits in with the way other AVO products were marked at that time.

Since this is not an Analogue Meter, we don't have so many of them in the Survey.

But we now have Six serial Numbers recorded for the DA 116 including the Two you have just given.

I do intend to produce a Digital AVO supplement to the Survey Document eventually.

It seems this wonderful thread has gone very quiet! So here I am to liven it up!
After a weeks relaxation in Spain with the family, I returned home too recieve 2 packages and 3 new meters.

1. DC Avo Minor (18251-95) a meter from September 1935, and the first in my list from 1935. This instrument is in good condition and came with hinged wooden, lined case.
The case style is the early straight edge type.

2. HR Avominor (566-141) a meter from January 1941. This is the oldest one on my short list of HR meters, and the second in my collection. This instrument is in great condition and has a stepped case. It came with the standard HR meter hinged double compartment wooden, lined case and two sets of leads

The 2 instruments above were purchase for just 30, a great deal!

3. Avometer Model 73 (to go with my Model 71, EM272, 12D [Telecom] and 12D [PO]
(Model 72 awaiting delivery)

Excuse the single image, Don't seem to be able to add more than 2 on my iPad.

Andy
