..... and finally the front Lyman ivory bead hunting sight.

With my apologies. I can't figure out how to downsize my photos and post more than one shot on each posting.

Thanks RK:

Takes quite a bit to get a 70 year old excited but this one does it!

I admire your photographic skills and particularly your staging. Can we count on you for a submission for the 201 WACA calendar?

Are the patent dates stamped on the tang sight?

No, there is nothing stamped on either the base or the stem.
