Part one.

It was the workhorse of the Yaesu from 1970, year of start of production to the 80s. It seems to be the apparatus, in the various versions, more produced by Yaesu. I bought it in a duty free shop of Panama, Canal Zone, in 1974, in that time I was working, in those places. I paid it 500 US $ and the serial number is 5L 310554. More historic info about Yaesu FT101E in this link.
