Hi all

I've wanted one of these for years but the ones that came my way were in very poor condition so I passed on them, This one is a beauty with fantastic patina, Unfortunately that means no etching 🙁

Cheers, John 🙂

Nice one, John.

It was introduced as a 'budget option' in the cash-strapped 1930s. But BSA didn't skimp on the quality at all.

There don't seem to be many around that haven't been very well used.
