Hello, I'm considering buying Marshall's 1936 and 1960A cabs can you please help me identify the production date of this cabinets. The 1960A is not a big deal I just want to be sure it's 1990's cabinet, but the 1936 has JCM800 plate on front panel, which as I've read' means that it's 1980's cab but the back of it and speakers themselves look like from 1990's. Please have a look.

In my experience, they made the 800 series 1936 cabs until 1991...I actually had a pair of them with your speakers.

Plywood with MDF back panel.
Mine, however, had the round input cup, like all the 800 series cabs. I believe the stereo jacks started with the 900 series.

Either there was some overlap, or you back panel was replaced, or a newer jack added, perhaps?
Great sounding cabs and that era 75 sounds great as well.

Without looking up the speaker date codes, that type magnet cover was 1990-91 ish, I believe.
