    Howdy buddy, Octavian here. I am wondering where the "crows feet" are on this 57RK. Normally they are very crisp. All corners look either exceptionally worn and rounded or its glare on the camera angle. I am used to seeing those crossed hatch marks on RKs. But you know me SSamir, RK's are not my specialty, but the core looks good to me. I am looking forward to further responses to see what the other members say. Take care friend. -Octavian-

    It's certainly an early core and has the dent row, curious wear on the ribbing but that may be honest wear.

    My example to compare...

    Guys, thanks for the feedback. I got a couple of thumbs up elsewhere on this one, so I went along and bought it. I will keep it until I find a minty one for the right price. I see these early types, or "first patterns" are climbing up in value, so just might be a great investment.

    Regards

    Update, gents. The cross is a good one but not the expected 1st pattern, "B" frame circa 1957-65 I was looking for. This one is a1st pattern core, late version "D" frame possible circa 1980-1990s version.
    I contacted the seller for a refund. Lets see what happens.

    Congrats SSamir! I was feeling good about this one. Cant wait till you post pics of it. Any RK is a nice addition to any collection.

    I'm actually returning it. I want the 1st pattern type, the 1st pattern core with the "b" frame. The one I posted is a nice one, but I cant afford to keep two types.
