    Might be an old 70's one, I don't know much except the old ones had checkerboard cloth similar to that. There's some people who know Marshall stuff real well on here though so somebody will be able to give you some info. You should contact the seller and get details about speakers in there though. I know I'd like to have a early Marshall cab, especially for a good price.

    "1960" is the model number... not the year of manufacture.

    An early 80's model 1960A (angled) 4x12 cab. Probably G12-75's since it is rated for 300 watts. A fair price but not my favorite Celestion speaker.

    What's the identifiers on that? When era did the mono style jack go to the 3 position and what is that cloth called? I could use a little education on this stuff myself thanks.

    Yeah I know that, this is a 1960a which is the slant model, the B is the straight cab. Was marshall even was making 412 cabs in 1960? Also, this could be a cheaper AVT cab or something

    Looking closely the badge appears to read 100 watts? Am I reading that right?

    Is that just faded checker board grill cloth? If so that's 70s stuff. (or reissiue)

    Tell you what for $350 I'd be interested I have a 74 1987 that's been sitting on an old Hiwatt cab for years. Sounds great but if I could grab a real Marshall cab for $350 I think I would.

    The second photo is more in focus and it shows 300 watts.

    I own a. 1981 Marshall JCM800 1936 (model) number that has the same round plug and similar label on the back. The grill cloth was probably black originally and faded that nice brown color. A lot of the old JCM800 1960 cabs faded that way. It's really hard to date a cab unless the original speakers are intact and then you check s/n's etc on the speakers to see when they were made. I always take the back cover off and check speakers when buying a used cab.
