Other Details


NOTES:  Although the advertisement shown below does not provide the variant name for this Academy Award model, both the G-S and Rockent crystal catalogs confirm that only two AA models took this crystal--the "S" and the "Z".  The "Z" is shown in advertisements, leaving this variant to be the "S".  This is, of course, a tentative ID, hopefully to be confirmed eventually through an advertisement.
