I've resolved things with the seller and are keeping these; I'll bring them to the meet.
Tjalling has first refusal on 2, there will be one more.

There's also a broken one (one of four retaining lugs missing) that also doesn't have the metal ring and is discoloured from a likely lacquer respray.
This might be salvageable and certainly could fit (after repainting) for "show".

A final thought on that last one; if there's much demand maybe it's useful as a model/comparison for another MJ 3D printing project?

Funny you mention that - I'm doing a commission for a set of custom centre caps at the weekend Getting the spring in the retaining lugs is the real challenge with these since the layered nature of FDM printing doesn't lend itself well to bending. I have some ideas though
