Glen, That plath with the SOLD AH is quite special. But speaking from experience working with older sextants, I expect you will find your Tamayas to be much more practical in terms of taking actual sights. Besides, unless the Plath includes a telescope not shown in the photos, you will have to use one of the Tamaya telescopes if you want to use it without the AH.
So my advice is to not part with any of your Tamayas until after you get the Plath and play with it a bit.
Oh, and from the pics, the AH looks like it is missing the eye cup, which is kind of a hassle. But I'll bet Bill Morris might have a suggestion if you happen to get it.
