thanks to both of you. However, may be a hiccup on my part insofar as Jackson shows only the 'Willow', and after Lustrousstone mentioned Wfrs. I got a bit of tunnel vision re the picture in the book. Will look carefully again tonight, just to make sure it isn't the 'Pewter' version as mentioned by Emmi - not so easy to tell the colours some times just from the pictures that we post. Nothing silly at all to add a little history re the price - I was actually around then, and 78 bob, or three pounds eighteen shillings, was a substatial amount of shekels/ackers. When I picked it out of a box on Sunday morning it was covered in grot/grime/muck, but it was the weight I think that made me think it had to be a bit special.
