I figure this is worth try.
For want of any better collecting strategy, I have gone after the Curta canister variations (with calculators inside them).
I have a spare type 1 metal canister, engraved with the word CURTA, with round letter "A". This canister is in very good condition, and is in the appropriate style for Curtas in the 12,000 - 20,000 serial number range (I think?).
I am seeking an equally good canister type 1 canister (or lid), engraved with the word CURTA, with round letter "A", BUT ALSO with the engrave "open" + arrow on the opposite side of the lid.
If anyone is perhaps interested in doing a trade, or wishes to sell a canister (or lid) in this style, I would be most interested to hear from them.
Lost on the far side of the world, where Curtas are seldom seen.
