Chemically darkened

Post by joerookery » Fri Dec 25, 2015 5:30 am

This is my one and only. It appears to me to be a technically darkened plate. It is also officer type plate. Some bozo soldered on the loops on the back and they are not original. In fact they're very weird. However the plate is original. I have trouble taking pictures. So this is as good as it gets. I would be interested in people's comments. Generously darkened process? This originally came from a Canadian collector who went by the callsign triplane.

Triplane is no longer with us unfortunately...passed away. He was a good friend of Tony's and had an excellent collection. He lived in Montreal.

I have not either. This is the only one I have ever seen. Kind of the reason I bought it. Time to pass it on.
