I picked one up off cl the other week for $10. He was asking $20. its a fancier cabinet than the one I had and looked better. Besides I need at least two right? :-) this one I believe has a wooden pitman arm. Are the ones with wooden arms older than the ones with metal arms?

From what I understand they are...I think I saw where Billy had dated them in the 1870's range? Not totally sure tho...
