Subject: [CR]Reynolds seat tube size ?Odd measurement....

I'm trying,without an accurate means of measuring,to figure out a seat post size for a Super Elliott frame,circa 1950.Sticker says "Reynolds butted tubes,forks and stays",looks to be original.26.4mm is loose,27.2mm won't go,and 26.8mm seems to snug up reasonably well.Was 26.8m ever a standard size for reynolds seat tubes?Is this bike just a little old and wacky?Is there such a thing as a 26.8mm seatpost that might be nearly period correct? Hmmmmmmmmmm......
