Price is $125 shipped.

Selling a Brown Brothers Machine BTL paddle.

Here is what I can tell you about it….

I received this in an estate sale last year. It works flawlessly. The condition is about an 8 out of 10, but that is to be expected. I would give this a much higher rating based on its age. There is some wear and some chrome issues, but not anything to get freaked out about.

This is the BTL model. According to this site… http://www.qsl.net/n6tt/brown.html it was one of the first series of the BBMC paddles. I am going to assume, based on the pictures that I have found, this is an early production. I only say that because of two things; 1) the model number on the sticker is ink stamped. 2) the “pat pending” stamp on the bottom of the base. If I am wrong, please feel free to correct me.

Anyway, I am sure that the new owner of this keyer will be extremely happy. It’s a great key, but I guess that I am just not that into CW. I would rather someone who has a great appreciation for Morse have this key.

Price is $125 shipped. Not open to trades. Once again, no lay a way. If you don’t have the money, don’t waste your time, or mine.
