I wonder if it isn't a memory board scavenged out of some other piece
of hardware and simply hacked to appear as more memory in the PET?
I think if that were the case, the interface to the PET expansion connector
would be a lot messier than what looks like a straight-across ribbon cable
with just a transition board to connect to the old-style edge connector, so
it does look like it's specifically for the PET, presumably with optional
different transition boards for the different PET connectors.
An interesting board indeed; what could those slots be for? I don't think
C64 carts would work very well in a PET...
