I remember maybe 10 years ago figuring out the connection between the typed
copier paper version and the formally-published MICRO mags.  I will see
what notes I have, maybe I wrote something about it someplace, but IIRC
Bill Sudbrink has these.  They have "6502" written in pen.  I suppose 1976
given the 650a came out in late 75 (?), but the 6502 was not really popular
until the JOLT/Apple I/Kim 1 of 1976.
