I've been using Ted Molczan's elements for MOS 1 and have not seen a listing
for MOS 1A or MOS 1B (unless he has changed that in a recent edition),
although he does provide elements for MOS 1 r.  Perhaps MOS 1 and MOS 1 r are
MOS 1A and MOS 1B, respectively?

In any case, since I first reported observing MOS 1's pinpoint flashes, I
feel responsibilty to reply to Jay's question.  The MOS 1 I have been
speaking about recently carries designations:

17527U 87018A.

(PS, boy am I glad to read all those comments agreeing with me on this one.
 For a newbie, there's nothing like having ones first posted observations
confirmed by those more experienced.  Thanks guys - and thank you MOS 1 for
not embarassing me.)
