Hello John,

Considering purchase of a Model 103 Olympic ISU, boxed with 1962 instruction sheet/parts list, both Flat bottom weights, and a Blued magazine (correct?). It's listed as a "very short run, and is "very rare". Also, "Between 1960 and 1963 High Standard offered the high end ISU model with special "high luster blue" finish as catalog# 9299. claims about only 500 were made (appropriate for a Catalog #9289 version, Model 103 Olympic TROPHY ISU)

From the serial number, please advise shipping date and catalog number as shipped. I believe that it IS a catalog 9299 and therefore ran some 6 years (not 3 or 4), and is "citation grade finish", NOT the Trophy grade 9289 3 year run version Model 103 Olympic ISU. I believe the seller is over embellishing what he's selling. It is nice, but perhaps not worth what his BIN is, maybe not close to his reserve.
