Below is a listing of all CB radios, their manufacturer years made, and each series' 3 digit serial number prefix.  I am indebted to Mr. Phil Nichols, former VP of Engineering for Browning Laboratories, and later owner of Nichols Electronics for providing me a copy of this data.  Phil kept a personal record of the CB products sold by Browning Laboratories from 1960 through 1978.  Phil graciously provided me this list over 15 years ago, and to my knowledge, this information has never been published before.

PLEASE - if you wish to refer to this information on your website, please link to this page.  It took some time to build this page and I would appreciate this work remaining intact with the appropriate credit to Mr. Nichols.
