Quote from: TG on Jun 20, 2010, 09:44 pmGreat pictures starcross!I went past the Mk3s today, Gosh, I would have much preferred the original signs I'm not sure why they would replace them?The Pull sign looks very clean, I didn't see one on the box before the revamp - does it look like a good copy? I don't know.and I thought I recognised the heat and light unit, I've one exactly the same in my house it's called a RIMA high light- everything in my place is original early 60's (apart from me, of course).p.s. Spookily there is a nasty looking crack on the side on the box ?!?

The guide price is 12,000 GBP, though I'd imagine it'd make 100,000 if their last auction was anything to go by... Also I bought four of the original glass signs from out of one of the boxes that are currently on ebay - planning on making a TARDIS-style coffee table, with internal lighting. Will put pics of them up later.

Quote from: ironageman on Jun 30, 2010, 01:39 pmSo it's a Century lock outside and an ETAS inside - I wonder what that says? - that the lock was changed for some reason, or that by this stage Century and ETAS were used interchangeably? Whitestar - did you get a good look at the key - and thus see whether the key was cut to fit a standard Met box? This would settle the point (arguably!).
