This catalogue aims to detail the major visible variations plus some notable casting differences.

The inspiration & foundation of information was Michael J. Stannard's excellent catalogue, unfortunately out of print and very hard to get hold of.

Originally created as a text catalogue of the variations I decided to add some photos for a more visual feel. Sample pictures show end result.

The catalogue is comb bound so that pages can be replaced if required.

Those who have dealt with me know that I strive to fair & honest so will offer refund (upon return), less postage if not satisfied. Will leave it to buyer to judge if price reflects information, presentation & time put in, thanks everyone

Have a look at the sample photos below - pricing, postage and payment details below.
