Congratulations Mr Sykes. I very glad to see that after your past experiences that you now own something to be proud of and also obtained at a good price.
On a side note, Is Sykes your last name? If so are there any Stanley or Guy Sykes in your ancestry?

Thanks Leon. And yes, there is no mistaking the coloration on this eagle. It is the KM very deep gold finish that I have read about. And thank you AZ Phil - At last I have the 'real McCoy' in hand! And no there's nobody by that name in my clan, well, not that I know of. But it's a fairly common north Yorkshire surname. And that's where I'm from originally.
All the best,
48xx is a good number as most SE KM's fall into that range. So 1+1 makes it KM , congrats.
Yes it is, and the name is on my wife's side of the Family and they would have come over here in the late 1800's and traveled from the east coast and out to here in Arizona. Some mention in the family about Sir Stanley Sykes was appointed to Queen Victoria's court as her Artist. He was the father of Stanley and Guy. Just checking as I love to research!!!
Thank You for the reply.
Nice KM helmet at a decent price!
