When did Casio start making such cases, like the a158w. I have one I really like, however I really want an old stainless steel, but the ones I found didn't work?

You can find them eBay. For $100 (maybe less if you're patient) they're easy to buy. Look for one with a photo of the module so you can know it's clean. Ask the seller if any of the buttons are stuck. Sometimes you can find similar models without the Marlin for under $50

And they are stainless, not chromed? Many thanks for your input.

The old marlins from the 80s? Yes. The chromed plastic didn't come until much later
