The one in question was hand-wired on pad-per-hole perfboard. I
submit that its purpose may never be known.
I'd have to rattle my brains quite a bit to even get an inkling for
the application of some of the bits of perfboard with stuff on them
in my hellbox that I built years ago. I ran across tiny one the
other day with two 7475s (not LS) with a header on it. I don't have
a clue about the application, but it probably goes back pretty far.
