Serial # 226644 - 1962 date. Excess to my needs at this time. There are NO chips, gouges
or excess wear or corrosion on the base. (there IS a little rust on the screws on the bottom, I
can send pictures). The feet are after-market, soft, hold the key in place while sending. I tore
this down, buffed up the chrome surfaces with Flitz, applied 10 weight silicone oil to the
bearing surfaces, burnished the contacts and it works great. I also have one of Johnny
Melvin's (JA7GHD) cable tidy unit with a red board and a 1/8 (3.5mm) inch MONO jack (this
was for the bug input of a Kenwood TS-590S), but you can rewire it to suit your input (1/4"
mono, stereo, whatever), just pick up a jack at Radio Shack or similar parts place. I will ship
this with the lever assembly removed and packed separately. $150. Shipping at my
discretion, USPS or FEDEX depending on your address and cost. HI and AK S&H will be $20.
