I purchased this from Lockwood Custom Optics about 3.5 years ago. Enjoyed it immensely. Pics are coming of this set. He made both mirrors, he can verify this. I will follow up with pictures and more details.

For Edit: Adding pics and more info to post
Weight of mirror: 14.9 lbs
Reflective surface is 15.92”, thickness is just a tad under an inch, maybe a hundredth under. You will need a good 18 point cell for this. The coatings look good, a few small edge defects, there are a few super fine hairlike scratches which I am sure you know will not affect the view. You will see where the clips were located when it was coated. The center of the mirror is scribed with a circle shape to assist with collimating. You will see Mr Lockwoods signature, mirror #, and focal length. It is just under F4, 63.6”
The Secondary mirror, made by Mr Lockwood also, is not quartz, about 13/16” thick, weighs about one pound. It has a couples very small coating blemishes, and small scuff area where I guess I laid it down to rough once, very hard to see unless you get it in the light just right. I tried my best to take pictures of the blemishes. I did paint the back Krylon Ultra Flat Black.
A new set like this with primary in quartz will be well over $6,000 from Lockwood Custom Optics. It cools down very fast, relatively for glass as you may know. Super views!! I priced it so if the noted blemishes bothered, one could have it coated new and still come out saving a lot. Glad to answer any questions!!
