help identifying this steel

I have an opportunity to buy this steel for a couple of hundred dollars. Have not seen it yet, only cell photos. What do you think?

Beautiful minty-looking silver Ricky. For that price I'd buy it for parts even if it didn't make a sound, but that's me and I'm no expert on value. If it works I'd say JUMP!

See this: http://www.rickresource.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=395336

Good luck man!

yup, thanks for the reply. Looks like it is the last model of the pre war silver hawaiians. I'll let you know if I get it.

Good luck. there's a ton of free C6 and other lap steel resources on the web too - start by searching the Steel Guitar Forum at http://bb.steelguitarforum.com/index.php.

If it works and really looks that good, it's worth at least $800 without an original case.
I can't believe anyone would ask so little.
