    The company was a little obscure/peripheral, and that may account for lack of sales, but I cannot fathom the date from your receipt though.

    They could be real keepers, and you can perhaps improve cabinet deadness with some corner bracing if so.
    The date looks like Jan 12 1980 if that makes sense.Where they around then?
