Okay, my recent EB scope arrived, 1957 GOTO Hy-Score 452!! It's mostly complete in in 8 of 10 shape, the glass is clean. It's missing the CW and shaft, and on finder adjustment screw/lock :(

So come on guys, put your thinking caps on and find me a source for the parts to colpete this masterpiece :help: :help: :help:

I'll post pics later once it's all setup up.......

SE Laslo was one of two importers of the American-import GOTOs. I was just wondering if you had received any of the original paperwork with this one.

Wow nice Chuck. I recently visited Steve Miller and saw his Goto 6". I guess I'm going to have to find and buy one of these now... They sure are nice! Yours is just beautiful!
