    This has been an "underground" news story for a few months...and it finally broke. Congrats to Mr. Page.

    Assuredly, a tip-of-the-hat to Perry Margouleff is in order as he was name checked (on Facebook) for this happening in the first place.

    Good going. :thumb:

    Yes, but now that they have "it", that they can measure it and Xray it and MRI it and, and, and...
    And they're gonna milk the cow and issue a CC for a ridiculous amount of money.
    If the last one was $25,000 aged and signed...

    Prepare your wallets.

    Just like they did with Frampton's '54. Given that one was about $21K MAP, this one will be $30K at least.

    It will also have the two extra toggle switches, which was probably a pretty easy verification.
