Lovely aristocrat in good condition see pics. Very slight plate loss on one end of the door tops.

TTO mechanism is like new and doors and bar alignment appears perfect.

Looking to trade for a very good condition red tip please and will take a Delta Echo red tip.
Can add to the deal if necessary


More pics on request

Is that 'Crat a No Date Code or one of the 1951's?

Gary I've been advised that's it's probably a late 30's early 40's model as it's no date code and has the full winged centre bar!?

I'm not knowledgeable on the variations though so would be happy to send detailed pics for you to work out exactly what it is

No date code is a 1946-47 without the notched center. bar and 1948-50 with one. Please advise which one it is.
Thanks

It would seem to be neither, it has no date code stamped, and the centre bar is not notched but has wings, like the early 40's brit crats.
