HB5 112824
Commodore 1541-II Disk Drive serial number HB5 112824 made in Hong Kong.
The 1541 Mark 2 was introduced in 1988. It has an external power supply and a smaller footprint. Disk operation is quieter and smoother than the 1541. The case has a lighter colour to match the 64C.

The device number can easily be changed as required (with the drive turned off!) using the two dip switches at the back of the 1541-II. Disk drives can be any number from 08 to 11.
