Silver Off Rounded Chinscales Wanted

Hey Guys,

I am looking for a set of rounded silver Off chinscales.

When they come up on ebay they normally do not sale.

They are rarer than their gilted/brass counter parts but do not draw the money as the brass ones do.

Also looking for 4 silver domed screw on spike revits .
