MITS Altair 8800b Turnkey

I have had a look at the cards and have found the following.
  • 3 x memory cards. Not sure what size memory chips it has on them
  • 2 x disk drive cards. The two cards go to one 37 pin 'D Type' on the back panel
  • 1 x main board with the c8080a processor on it
  • 1 x IO card, at least it looks like an IO card. It has 'Mits 88 UIO' on the card.
  • 1 x monitor card ( I think) which goes to a 25 way 'D Type' connector on the back panel.
The over all condition is good.
Unable to find any sign of a serial number.
