Moog Minitmoog SN 0001 Prototype?

via this auction

SN 0001 was listed here back in 2014. Note the "Minitmoog Synthesizer" on the left control panel appears to be hand painted on. Compare it to this one. Anyone know how many of these were produced? When I visited Synthorama back in 2008, the curator Martin Hollinger mentioned it was one of the rarests of the Moogs if not the rarest.

According to the listing:

"minitmoog synthesizer Number 0001 Made, and it Works. Not great, but each key does make a sound ..

I bought this 15 years ago..have stored it safely for years.

NOTE: this one was the prototype

I bought from the grandson of one of the engineers who worked at Moog in Buffalo, NY

I plugged it in and it works..all the keys create sound..didn’t mess with dials and such..but wanted to make sure will arrive not doa"
