Has anyone ever seen a very rare Marantz reverberation amplifier from the late 1970s or early 80s?

I remember in the early 80's, I was going to a family member's house who had a Marantz reverberator similar the Sansui RA 500 with a horizontal x colors , I have been searching all over the internet for some information and there is no record, no photographs, no video, no content, -not even in HiFi Engine appears information-
I feel that it is something mysterious that there is no record on the internet on that equipment , I think Marantz manufactured very few units and they are extremely rare and that is why it does not appear some information on the internet, will anyone have seen any? I want a picture and know the number model
