Love those 1920s Models

02/24/2012 09:08

It is suprising how many of the 1920s models are still in circulation.  They are usually not in great shape, quite often missing those old Cathedral style hands that are so difficult to find.  I buy them anyway and will deal with the hands issue later.  This week alone I scored two hard to find models:  the Brunswick and the Spencer.  I've never seen either at auction before.  Fortunately, neither seller realized what they had, so I was able to cut a deal and snag them rather than letting them go through the auction process.  Here they are (seller's pics), with corresponding advertisements.  The Spencer even comes with the original mesh band, which all by itself can be very difficult to find.  I should receive the Brunswick today, and the Spencer next week.
