    Looks good but I do wonder about the decal/insignia which appears in remarkably better condition than the rest of the shell.

    I normally wouldnt look at these as the amount of dodgy ones out there, but this guy i have seen around for years and he gets some good stuff...doesnt mean he cant make mistakes though

    Hi, I have never studied these decals before, but I will say that I personally am uneasy with the fact that below the "bolt" area in particular the corrosion is quite heavy and yet the surface of the decal is unaffected in any way? Looks like it has been placed straight on top of surface rust to me and if this were a standard TR decal, I would pass on it. Leon.

    No worries. I'm pretty sure Doug has sold out of most of his collection now but he might have enough photos on file to make a call on your example.
