darker screen glass for better blacks & contrast.
CC tubes worked down through the 19" hybrids and the 16 & 14
tube sets as a step up option.

IMHO the control area was the best looking non-remote panel.
IIRC only on some E & F consoles IIRC. Slider has a small hole
in it for chromatic adjustment. Came with a plastic screwdriver.

IIRC lamps can be changed from front. Pull knobs then a few phillips.
Probably #159 or #259 in Zenith tradition....

That raises a question, just how many 25V CRTs can take 30 Kv safely?

Agreed about the look of the control panel.
