Well it is a '30s mech. Cannot see any vendor, but who knows?

Yes, that's the one... I had seen it but not saved it. Nice to see a different trim option on one of these.

I'd say it's a 10-stop. Early '30s.

I've just read through the whole of this (merged) thread, and I'm getting a strange feeling that I ought to buy a Tom Boland revamp.
(This could be a problem, because I can never quite see the point of buying ONE of anything...)

Only one; but an unusual one.
These Boland machines are surely the closest thing there is to a British 'bandit' of the mechanical era. Everything savouring of American racketeering has been carefully removed from them. I love the full-size 10-stop numbers; my Mills/Pace jackpot conversion has them.
I take it you are in Lewes, some 320 miles away?

My usual courier will deliver it for £50 (providing your not in some obscure corner of the country) /DRIVE\

I'm in Stockton-on-Tees, which is not TOO obscure.
You could PM me with description and price, if you were so inclined.
I'll take a guess that it's a 10-stop Mills gooseneck, deep down.
Mine needs a new award card, but it's an obscure size. Can you help with that, too?
