    Full crossgraining right up to the tip! Even the hanger's leather is looking great. Still with the original shipping home box-what more could you ask? A superb early nickel fittings Klaas example in untouched original as-found shape. About as good as it gets.

    Thank you Gerrit...I appreciate the reply. This one cost me a bit more than I wanted to spend. It was important given the background, provenance, family connection and Elmer's history to pay the premium to get it. I think the best part I did not share was the feeling I had when my Grandfather's eyes lit up and jaw dropped!!!! He was elated and kept asking me how I got it. It was the last piece he saw before he passed away 5 years ago. I know he had tried to buy it from Elmer many times but he would never part with it. So it really has got plenty of emotions and nostalgia behind it. One of those babies that will go to my Grandkids hopefully someday with a letter from Grandpa Rossi.
