I'm doing this from vague and ancient memory, but I wouldn't be
surprised if the correct designation were "IBM Magstar (Model) 3570-B".
"3570" /*is*/ the model number in the IBM scheme of things, or at least
that's how it used to work, and there could very well be a 3571-A. I put
Model in () because IBM was never consistent about including it.

A Series/1, for example, could have been "IBM Series/1 (Model) 4954-A",
"IBM Series/1 4955-E", "IBM Series/1 4956-F", etc. The hyphen is also
optional, if memory serves.

The point being: you should probably find the IBM manual and look it up.
