OK, I pulled the front panel appart tonight and I found out that whoever
owned this model colored the silkscreen with magic marker. Bogus!
Anyway, I can get a new photomask from Todd Fischer for $20. Well worth

My IMSAI came with as piece of black paper over the logo.
I was told that it was used for early development work.
This is consistent with the fact that it had one of the
early Digital Systems floppy controllers that transferred
by DMA. The only problem I have is that the serial number
is missing :(
