Yup, that's the problem with the Remington IBM cards - there is scant little information in there that we don't already know by looking at a gun, and what we really want to know is rarely ever in an IBM card.

Interesting to me is that the scroll engraving all over that SBT looks very much like the work of Robert Runge but the floral arrangement on the floor plate is unlike any of his work that I have seen before. It isn't as deep as some of the cuts in the scroll and is overall much finer... possibly done by a different engraver?

Can someone with more 'Runge experience' than I comment on this?

Actually, John's picture can be enlarged while it seems my copy of his can't.

Lovely SB, John. Some SBs have more flowers and some have less. I assume Runge was the engraver in that era.

The letter states in 1937 a SB listed for $256.00. That’s at the height of the Great Depression. I wonder what $256.00 would be equal to in 2018 dollars? I would assume Mr. Pancake was a wealthy man.

According to an inflation calculator I found on line it would be about $4,500.00
