Hi,

I shall be posting a G.Sprgr on e-stand and I want to know if anyone has experience of these in bare metal?

All I have done with the main tube is a clean up with fine wire wool and oil and there is no trace of paint on it at all.

I wondered if in the latter stages this may have been done as a cost-cutting exercise?

Regards,

Grossfuss

A couple of photos - I believe the card tube is a real one, comparing it with previous threads, but I think it is two left-hand ends as there's no writing. The end cap is marked "cuy 41" which is Eli Adolff A.G.

Any comments appreciated.

Regards, Grossfuss

Thanks for both your comments - in later thinking I also wondered if it had just lost its paint over 70+ years.

How much do you think that tube might be worth then Jens?

Regards,

Grossfuss
