I picked this up from a seller in Portugal on eBay. I liked the handle shape, and it was cheap, so I bought it. It was in a box that said Semogue 605. 

It came about a week ago. It's a little different than any of my other Semogues. The knot is smaller, the hair is darker, and it doesn't bloom like the others. Also, the biggest difference is it doesn't have the chrome metal cup. This one looks to be black plastic. It also doesn't have a Semogue or Excelsior sticker, just the sticker that says cerda pura.

It has me thinking that it's a "cheaper" drugstore brush in its homeland? Either way, it's a neat little brush and I've been using it all this week. It's a great addition to my other 50mm loft Semogues.

I've never tried one, but the 1250 that I used to have was way to floppy for me. That's why I stick with anything Semogue in a 50mm loft.

I agree with the idea of a 50 mm loft on Semogue boar brushes. My 1470 hits a sweet spot, while the 1250 is just a tad "mop-like." It was for that reason, and the overall largeness of the SOC boar knot that I let the SOC go. They're all quite soft, imo.
