I want to make a fair offer on this , I haven;t seen it in person yet. I don't even know where to start . I have no experience with visibles, I'm guessing it's an early Fry Mae West and with all the rust maybe 1600 on the high side. But I could be way off, and the mechanism on the outside is something I've never seen and can't find any reference to. Thanks , Tom

I don't have one. I've probably only had half a dozen pumps in my lifetime. I may go take a look at it anyway. Seemed like a real nice old guy on the phone and I have a feeling I'd enjoy talking with him .

So I hesitated on this one, finally decided to go get it and missed it by that much. Oh well, there's always next time. A couple of you pm'd me on this. Thank you for that.

Will be hard to find another, looks like all complete all cast very early.

Wow...too bad you missed it. Early, rare pump. $1600 would have been an absolute steal.

In the words of Homer Simpson .... Doh! Like I said earlier he was a really nice guy and he told me today he ended up getting a bit more for it so I'm happy for him.
