Dave - The all important headstamp? FAT1E1 case?

Headstamp is F A 48. Case is either a FAT1 or FAT1E1 - mesurements tend to to indicate the former, but with case to case variability I may be wrong.

That would make it interesting, to me, because I’ve always associated the FAT1 case with the the T65E1 cartridge. Otherwise, what is the difference between the FAT65E1 and FAT65E2?
