Got an old amp from my dad i wanted to sell today, my dad says he bought it in the early 70s, when I had it looked at I was told it was an '81. he had it repaired a few years back and I need to know if it's an early seventies model or if the repair guy switched out the amps.

Bought new in early 70s it would be a Silverface Deluxe. That one looks like an 81. No one would mistake a Silverface 70s amp for an 81 Rivera era Deluxe.
