Yup, I do, Bill!

I might be tempted to restore the silver inlay to get it back in full glory...

Regards,

Mixed emotions about restoring it. In some way the missing inlay seems to have some story.

My present focus has been acquiring antique cars. I have a 1903 Columbus Electric that is original down to the slightly fraying leather fenders. Just won an important Preservation Award at a major concourse.

A similar, but perfect car in the same area did not even get honorable mention.

I would never repaint or change anything on our car. It has important history and provenance.

Has separate ganja. Very fine. Not sure about holes drilled? Will see whatever info Cato has in "Moro Swords". Will look it up in a few days, my copies are in storage.
