        To know for sure if there is foam in the manuals look at these pictures. This is the only way you can be sure:

        Hammond is famous for using up inventory of parts, so it is not out of the question that there may be foam in one manual but not the other.
        Also, there is no way that you can know the history of the organ...those keyboards very well may have been swapped at some point.

        In theory, there is no difference between theory and reality.
        In reality, there is.
