Just recieved it today. serial # 57469 CPLATH . I've been cleaning and attempting to adjust for about 6hrs now. I did not get a cool canvas bag but it was very well packed. Tons of foam in the case and shreded dot matrix paper for packing.. It does not have the prismatic leveling device. The back of the case was stove in and will have to get replaced (I'll be looking for what appears to be mahogany) The adjusting wrench does not fit any adjusting points. I have gone thru all my allen wrenches(I have a bunch) and found 1 that works on the Index mirror and 1 that works a bit on the Horizon mirror. The horizon shades drop with gravity thus no horizon shading. Other than that it is a beautiful work of art. The Index arm is so smooth the micrometer seems to have just the right friction to not mess up on a rough day. I'll Put up Pictures when I can.
