Bought an ORANGE amp with 412 cabinet the other say. Serial number on the head is OA 7177. Seller was positive it's a 1972 and that it's all original but not 100% on an exact model. Beyond that I can't find any info....anyone have any help for me ? Play on...

That looks almost like mine! It is a bit different from the one (GRO) at Orange Field Guide, both internally and on the front. Mine has not the four screws that the GRO has, but it has the same plexi front panel. It is not really easy to see in the picture, but it seems that your amp does have the same front panel w/o the four screws at the corner. The serial on the head cab is OA 7476. You can see pics of my amp here:

It is a bit more orange now :-)
