Need some more pics to help you out, especially cosmetic since they can help get the manufacture date in the ballpark. Anything with manufacturing codes will narrow the date down further.

I'd probably guess between '68-'69. My '69 had the extra cut out holes for preparation for the 120's. My '68 doesn't have them, but it also doesn't have the reverberation in/out jacks.

Just a guess, though. I could be wrong.

My 100 has a date on one of the capacitors. Have you checked the parts?

Early 69 didn't have the two extra holes, nor the reverb loop. Late 69 did.

Pictures of power capacitors in HD should may be help.
Huh?
