      The brand name on the core board is "Fabri-Tec". They manufactured cord planes for a number of memory board manufacturers. YOu've got the cores but not the drivers and receivers. This board would plug into a card set with those electronics.

      I suggest you note the model number and look at all the "core memory board" pictures you can until you find a match for that model number. Then you'll have an idea of what "drove" these core planes.

      I don't advise trying to build analog core memory read/write electronics. Ask me privately about it if you want, I think a better "deal" would be to trade it for a complete core memory board set.
