    I bought a vintage Shure Unisphere I 565SD Made in the USA. It is the early version of the SM58, but has been made in cheaper versions since the 1960's. This is not a 60's version since it has a XLR end on it. The really old one had the 4 pin connector. However, the mic I have still says Shure Brothers, Make in USA and Model 565SD. I am thinking it is from about the 1970's, but I could use a little help. I have called Shure and they can't tell me anything other than what is new. Kind of disappointed in that one. I will post a pic or two as soon as I can.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Not that anyone wanted to respond, but Shure told me that these mic's MIA were produced from 1968 to 1985 when they moved production to Mexico. However, the 3 pin XLR didn't come out until 1972. So I have narrowed the date of my mic to 1972 to 1985.. Still more checking out to do
