I'd bet there is a tiny faint W somewhere on the bottom inside. That's usually the case when there is nothing particularly visible. You may need a magnifying glass to find it.

Jim,
I'd agree if the D is on the rear ledge.

Seen some AOB's that were hard to see in heavy milling scars but IIRC usually have 2 letters like FF or the like added.

Congrats on your UEF grab

Sometimes a flashlight across the slide box brings out the markings

Looks like Charlie called it, Your "O" must have been struck lightly
the earlier IBM E279 slides were reported with a single letter, some with a double letter. The E379 IBM slides were only reported with double letters.

Yup! Charlie got it and I missed. Could have been either and Charlie got it.
