Mine was a (sort of) gift from my father; an ivory scaled one he brought back from the war (II) after duty in the Pacific (I think he got it somewhere in the Phillapines). Then, a generation later, a green plastic scaled, aluminum framed monstrosity of unequalled cheapness, procured in Vietnam.
Both are crap, beat to shit, and totally irreplaceable.
Will find/photograph/post both and/or either, if I can conduct a thorough enough search of my attic. I'm not really inclined to, as it is infested with ghosts.
Is it...Tomorrow....Or just the end of time?
