Real nice matching one nice find! timothy
Nice, complete rig! Funny that I have noticed the plum color bluing on some 37-39 dated bayo's and again in the 42-43 years. I always thought that the earlier dated ones must have been reblued in the 42-43 period, but now I don't think so. I now wonder if the earlier bayo's originally looked black/dark blue and faded to the plum color over time due to a contaminated bluing solution or too much heat during the bluing process.
