Default Curious HK Toggle...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...0%3D%26fvi%3D1

The handle looks a little too squat and short and the handle does not appear to have the diagonal lines running through it.

Once again, good observation, Pete. The toggle top also looks buffed. The "DWM", etc. was probably removed. Would be interesting to test the thickness of the toggle with a micrometer. Love your new Avatar, Pete. You come up with some great ones!

Hi Doc,

The e-Bay seller has several HK parts, but I do not see any HK proofs on those other parts.

I find my avatars on e-Bay looking at old Swiss postage stamps and old postcards. The Library of Congress has some good photo galleries as well.

Here's an avatar for you from the Norman Rockwell days :

Doc,

Before then...you could also send your favorite jpeg file to John S. and ask him to insert it into your profile.
