I'll one-up you. I picked up a cal. 123 Quadron, gilded and "engraved in the old Guild manner," i.e. an "Anniversay Quadron," that had been turned into a pendant. I bought I anyway, figuring that the plates alone were worth saving since everything else could be swapped out. It actually turned out to be in good shape, good balance, just missing the canon pinion and hour wheel. It's just waiting for the right case now.

The people that defile scarce, high quality items likely have Dumbo ears so, nothing is out of the realm of possibility! :D
