Robert; I'll be at the cycle shop on Monday or Tuesday of next week to get the serial number and get a few jpgs up for folks to look at. I've gotten a few letters offlist about the Nervex Pro lugs and it seems like they were available as early as 1952. I'm talking to Richard Schwinn next week possibly, so I'll forward the jpgs to him to see if Waterford has any information available.

Best regards, Peter
