Diamond Match - Slanted Version

Beaton & Caldwell Co. c. 1910-1920

Two versions of this machine exist, one with the drum vertical made by Edwards Mfg. Co. and one with the drum slanted made by Beaton & Caldwell Co. They are both neat machines but the slanted version is by fare the more stylistic and more coveted along with being the earlier model. The graphics on this make all the difference, without them it is very plain and commands much less in the way of price. I have looked for one of these for several years. Though I have seen many, none have had just the right look. Most of these seem to have a lot of rust and or paint loss. When I found this one I knew that it was the right one for me.
