Yes, it was a REL (Radio Engineering Labs, not the modern subwoofer manufacturer) Precedent FM tuner, designed around 1954 by former associates of Edwin Armstrong (inventor of FM and several other major radio-related breakthroughs). Mono only, but with a multiplex output jack which allows it to be used in stereo in conjunction with an external multiplex adapter (many of which were made by various manufacturers during the transition period between mono and stereo, around 1960).
Legendary, and rightfully so. If in good condition, it is both glorious sounding and one of the most sensitive tuners ever made. I have one in my main system, which I don't ever anticipate selling. :)
