FYI - I just saw that one of my favourites is for sale on the Simpsons site:

I love the looks, size and performance of this somewhat uncommon brush.

Excellent brush and price! Paid full retail for mine and its worth every penny to me. I like the higher loft in this series.

I have a 58 Manchurian (not tortoise however). It is an excellent brush!

I pulled the trigger on it during black Friday.
It arrived yesterday and I had my first shave with it today.
It is very nice. A friend told me to wait about 15 shaves before it truly opens up.
I had a Duke 2 in best a few years ago which I sold. The handle was to small for me and it was a bit scratchy, but there is something about Simpson brushes.
This one has no scritch or anything like that. The handle is pretty comfortable (though I have other brushes that are more suitable for my ergonomic preference). The handle is indeed beautiful. 

The closest comparison for me is a Zenith Manchurian, larger knot and shorter loft, and also almost new, so once both are broken in, I will post my thoughts.
