Firstly many congratulations on that rare piece Mark, it's a real beauty! If you got that cheap, then I really am green with envy. On the crown, it does look quite similar to the one on mine. A little hard to tell with camera angle and all that, but if it is the same crown, then I we may have some rethinking to do?
Yes, I think I agree, mine probably narrows in towards the stem more than yours - but it is hard for me to see...
I agree that the crowns are different. I also agree that it's a wonderful find. I was watching this one and was pretty surprised by the price at the end of the auction. Given how long you've been searching for one of these, Mark, I would love to know what your top bid was -- and how much relief you felt when the last 10 seconds elapsed and the price held stable :)
Now to find that damned serif version......
Bump for the thread, it is all so beautiful.
Just to add my pride.
What lovely Strelas in this thread! Love the vintage ones. My new Strela arrived today. :)
