I know this is in your database, at least the first dial variant, but here's my pair of Thin Thin C's, case 6850

Michael, awesome Bro!
With those single-tree lugs that one has to be tough enough! :shock:
Did that one have a name or merely an impersonal model number?

That's all there is, 441victor (joel) posted the image ages ago on a driver's thread. I stumbled on it a few weeks ago.

I said it was awesome, it's very Polarus in its look but it's a Thin-Thin.

I have nothing else for it yet but if one pops up on fleaBay it will be a bloodbath for sure.

I had forgotten I had posted that one. I grabbed it from an ebay auction and actually got the model number from an inside case shot. It’s a 4431 and the case is 10k by Queens. Here’s a pic from another auction showing the same model.

Image

The image is a little off with just enough reddish tone to make me wonder if it's colored gold but it's probably just white.

I guess I’ll take the opportunity to show some other unknown models that I’ve shamelessly borrowed pictures of.

This is another 10k Queens cased Thin Thin ‘30’ but no number.

Image

A Thin Thin ‘30’ with no model.

Image

A black dialed model that doesn’t match up to any of the white dialed models. Again no inside case pic.

Image

And a couple of grade 760 dials.

Image

Image

And just to mess with anyone that thought we had the Thin Thin L lineup nailed down, here are two obviously model 4448 cases with different unknown dials.

Image

Image

I’m smitten by this one. A model 4447 Queens 14kgf case with a dial to die for.

Image

And lastly a dial that I believe is another variant of the only ‘27’ L model we have an ad for but in black.

Image

Gotta love Thin Thins for the hours of amusement they’ve provided if nothing else. Joel

I just got this one in. Needs lots of work I think it will be worth it. It's pretty darn cool in my opinion.
