Felt compelled to explode here fwiw among others who could appreciate.
Wished to wait until auction end.
Upon taking a look again, Holy Smokes.
I’ve been really interested in a pre HE S for a while. Loved my other 2 HE models I’ve owned.
Mr. Kirbert Palm’s compendium a godsend of course.
In fact, came across a past contributor’s pre HE a while back as I was on the search for one.
Bernard Embden(?), created an enthusiast’s page. Serendipity suddenly found it available for sale! But alas I was too late. Of any pre HE to own…
That was a year or so ago. It went up to Kentucky, again available for sale I discovered via Craigslist(?!), ad disappeared without a sale and my jotting down info…sigh.
Ah well. FWIW
