[time-nuts] looking for data on time code display

Maybe something like a Datum or AstroData.

The reverse code switch is for reading tapes backwards. It looks like a
modified standard product. It does not appear to interface w/ a tape
search controller.

At a guess it's mid 1960s to mid 1970s, to go w/ something like an Ampex
FR1800 or similar tape machine.

Many IRIG recorders could go  240, 120, 60, 30, 15, 7.5, 3.75, 1.875, and
0.9375 inches per second.

FWIW,

-John
