I really like that!
I could look at that all day!
It is by far the best looking vintage that I have seen.
The Boultons,Brookes,Everests, Mt Vernons and yes,even the Jeffreys(!) pale (IMHO) by comparison.

Are these hard to find and extremely expensive?

On the contrary, the Steeldon model is not too hard to find on that auction site. But since not many sellers know the model names, you have to look at the photos to find one. Black dialed versions ARE pretty scarce and command a somewhat higher price, but the white dialed versions sell on average for $130. :thumbup1: The last five selling prices were $113, $84, $120, $223, & $85. The highest price paid over the last five years or so was $363.
