Yes.I apologize for being a little thick and slow on the uptake.
Do Roy's overlays show that the d-ring clip on the toe pic saber is the same shape/size as the single hole d-rings we've previously been using and not the smaller d-ring shape/size of the Elstree saber, however people are now wanting the older style d-ring shape/size but instead of a single rivet hole they are wanting the double-rivet-hole configuration?
So, there's something else here that I noticed that might not be terribly important:

This image was posted a few pages back, and I notice that the two (apparently smooth Folmer-style pins) look almost to be bent in the same manner. Does it look to anyone else that the pins aren't parallel, and the pin closest to the S-curve end is bent downward, toward the glass eye, in BOTH images?
Does anyone else see this?
I don't know how reasonable it would be that the Elstree top could be the original hero top? The clamp and bottom don't seem to match, but how likely is it that the top is the same one? Does the timeline work out at all?
Yikes—that’s a lot of clams to see shelled out for a hilt that has been torched and squeezed in vice, with most of its parts stripped off, and no verification that it ever saw screen time.Wow I bet it sells for more then 105k
I see that too. Good eye. They look bent in same way. But could be that something standard on these kind of graflexes?Sorry for the confusion; I borrowed another image. Ignore the red arrows for this one; I'm not talking about the damage to the shroud.
I mean the actual socket pins, in the cutout between the glass eye and the red button - do they look like they might be bent in the same way on the Elstree as on the known Hero?
