    That was cool. There's one on eBay at the moment for £15,000!

    I also watched this, you are led to believe this was a repair of all the original parts.

    If you look closely at the un-repaired version it has the correct 1st generation periscope then closely at the repaired version it has a 2nd generation periscope.

    The 1st generation periscope mechanism was prone to breaking inside so was replaced with a more stable mechanism for later versions.

    One of us smells like a tart's handkerchief.

    Acacia_Avenue is spot on with his observations. The later more compact periscope just does not look right on a Royal Premiere C269. My personal opinion is it has been over restored and has regrettably lost its 47 year old patina in that process. It may look prettier than my tarnished example but I believe on this occasion less is more! 😪
