Original Contestant Area by mrentertainment Original Contestant Area by mrentertainment
Here's the original Contestant Area that was on the pilot and the series with the 5 figure eggcrate read-outs (4 digits and a dollar sign) that were used until January 18, 1978.

Happy 40th year Wheel! Although the nighttime show don't really care anymore about the 1970s version that started it all.

Wow, nice! Now, although MB's board game adaptions seem to indicate that the score displays were color-coded, I can't help but wonder if that really ever happened on the show.

Well, according to the "Wheel of Fortune" History Wiki, the scoring read-outs became the same colors as the arrows on June 1975, but changed back to white on January 19, 1976.
