Model M-9 c. 1957 in Stag Gray.  This model is somewhat of a mystery because it does not appear in any of the Rickenbacker literature I have seen; however, it shares many features of Rickenbacker amplifiers of that era; I have chosen to date it to 1957 due to the Lucite handle introduced on several models that year.  Has an early 12” Oxford speaker which features a stencil picture of an Ox on the magnet but no other coding information.  “Stag Gray” is the description of the amp coverings in the ‘50s Rickenbacker catalogs, which describe it as a “washable covering.”  Unfortunately, this covering has the consistency of wallpaper on a thin cloth base and did not hold up well to heavy wear or exposure to moisture.  Rickenbacker instrument cases of the ‘50s were covered in the same material, also known as “Elephant Hide.”
