Hello all, I have recently acquired 2 km84i microphones that are in beautiful condition. One thing I do notice on them is that they have black Neumann badges - does that make sense? I could not find any info on here regarding badges and 84i's that aren't purple. The mics themselves were built in February, 1968 and the serial numbers are consecutive and in the low 2000's.
I got these from the original owner and they are housed in the original Gotham cases. He told me that the badges are the ones that came with the mics and while I believe him, I wanted to get some confirmation from the experts.
