I am following the bar end shifter auction quite closely as I have a set of these that I was planning on offering shortly. Is there anything in particular about these ones that make them more valuable than other 50's Gran Sport bar end shifters? Are these ones the plated brass ones? How can one tell if one has the brass ones? The two that I have are slightly different one from the other: the one has a point to P end of the area surrounding the word Patented, whereas the other has nothing. Is this significant? Are the blue caps of any importance? Does anybody want to take a stab at why this pair is going for such a skyhigh price?
