I have one that I bought from listmember Tom Adams to use on my Jack Taylor tandem.  The textured top matches the B-73 on the stoker position perfectly.  I suspect that it is a cheaper model of the Pro as it has the same shape (narrower than th B-17 standard, wider than the B-17N) but perhaps lesser quality leather without the skiveyed edges.  I suspect A78 means it was made in August 1978.  Hilary Stone sells some from time to time.
