Well, I have two examples in my collection, but cased and uncased, but that's a lot, even considering how rare they are.
I bought mine a long while ago, I even sold a spare for £50.00 way back in the late 1980's.
What would you reasonably pay?
Live every day as if it were going to be your last; for one day you're sure to be right.
