My mum had one of those, didn't realise they'd be so valuable  :thinking:

It's newer than my grandmother's 1897 one, so I'll pass.

Looks like an early 99K1/2 model (small ¾" tension discs) to me. Only parts that are getting hard to find is the check spring, there is no 3rd party making these springs either as of yet and don't expect them to be either as just not enough of a market for these early 99's left out there. I own/use one and personally wouldn't pass another one up  :thumbsup:

ps: not at that price though :laughing:

I'm not sure about that handle.  I wonder how much they'd knock off it because of that? ><

@BrendaP well spotted! They don't know how to lock it into position for use. Definitely need to knock off £9, 900 for that. Though it does look to be in good condition.
