I do not see the usual graduation marks on the left-hand side of the staff, but I do not know if they were on the real early sights.

The third picture down does show graduation marks. The shape of the top is a bit different and that is what mainly concerns me.  All I can find have a rounded inside curve at the top as opposed to this straight cut.  The base is marked 73 on the bottom.  The knob looks right.  The fit of the upright into the base looks good.

I have one with the straight cut.  Are they really bringing this much?

Yes they do but the description of case colored is bogus. I see blue on it.

Here is a rounded one I have but its a thin base.

That box ought to be worth more than the sight!  Only one I’ve ever seen.

 The cut in the staff is squire on the bottom, I have seen that before but square on the top is new to me. Also the model number on the spring is usually read from the back end of the sight, it is in the right place, just reads from the front end. Those two items are different but could well be right.

 The after market sights bases do not look like this one. This base is original. The picture of the range markings on the staff is to fuzzy to tell if real.  T/R

I kind of wanted it and was going to buy it but I just was not sure it was right and the condition is a bit low for what I wanted it for.  Now I don’t have to worry anymore.
