I know nothing about their ancestry in terms of whether either set has been rebuilt, how long Ni-Cads last prior to the necessity of a rebuild, cost of same, etc...
An Update: After several months of searching, I managed to locate and purchase an MB-1 battery pack/pair of MS-1 batteries. MS-1 battery packs looks very clean; MB-1 pack itself (the indicator, actually) - to no surprise - doesn't function. Cost? $80.00 USD plus shipping. So, that leaves the search to just one more pair of MS-1s. The hunt continues...
