First SCSI HDD - Priam 806 8-inch?

It turns out the Priam 806 8-inch SCSI HDD circa 1984 is likely the first
HDD to have a native SCSI interface.  It shipped a few months before the
Xebec Owl which is likely second.  AFAIK all earlier units had a bridge
controller to a more conventional interface.  

If anyone has any different info as to dates and models I would appreciate

Does anyone know where a Priam 806 might be, or have any documentation?  The
former probably belongs in a museum and the latter on Bitsavers.  I will
help facilitate either.
