What a great find. Love the front scale... true old school. Can you shoot a pic of the back scale?

Great find and looks to be in good shape. I have an 11-inch Panamex with black scales. They were one of the pre-1954 NYC importers.

What size is this? I’ve never seen one that wasn’t 11”.

That was always what I thought too. Then I came across an 8" er.

Jeff - as I was typing my post about the stamp, the thought came to mind that of course you would have one, and will probably post a picture. Apparently I was wrong - you have TWO, and they look to be in superb condition!

That's a great looking pair. Especially that 8" as it looks to be mint or very close to it. Most excellent!

Yes mine is a 8” .. I could’ve sworn I replied and posted a picture of the back scale but it seems I flubbed it… My apologies
