In Response To: Re:Bummed & Ripped ()


This is a very interesting story, thanks for sharing it with us.
It shows that there is always room for surprizes even for very knowledgeable collectors like you.

If the movement works correctly and you can put it to the Montreal case, just do it and pretend it's a real montreal... ;-)

Or... you could put it up for sale, describing it as a franken. Even franken Heuers fetch good prices these days :-)))
