As Tony has said in his separate mail, our joint series of articles is a
good start point on this topic.

The first issue is to distinguish clearly between “official” mascots from
the factory and private enterprise offerings like the Desmo you have. The
second is, as Tony says, to be clear that the absence of a number, even on a
factory mascot, does not mean it is a copy. All pre-war and early post-war
mascots from the factory had no number.

Positive identification/valuation of a mascot would never rely just on the
number, especially if there are doubts about its provenance.

Hi Dick,

Good to hear from you - but the mystery deepens. I tried to reply to you
off-list using your e-mail address below, but my mail was also bounced. The
error message was:

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by
the server. The rejected e-mail address was ‘Strever@email.com’. Subject

Do you have another e-mail address?
