Numbers Check

I would appreciated some input on this mixed set of 42/40 cases. The 42 serial numbers look good to me, but is the pad original. If it has been altered, they did a pretty good job.

The only reason I ask is because they have been on the market for a long time, with no takers, at what I would consider a pretty reasonable price.

Thanks in advance,

Mis matched cases can cause you problems. It could be that the right case is from a stolen machine. You won't know unless a numbers savy LEO ruins your day.

Mark, I’ve seen the left case on eBay before but at that stage the right-hand case with it wasn’t 1940; instead it was 1948 and its belly number was 448-1+++. And I sent you a PM.
