Thanks, his reconstructions look quite good, and historically accurate for the most part which I place a lot of value on.

Indeed, its not just the price, but the wait. 4-5 years in some cases.

Wow. I didnt even know about the waiting time.
I always thought smiths in that price range would have difficulties to find customers in the first place but also was aware that such an effort takes its time. But 5 years...

I know it is incredible. There is a waiting list. Every now and then you will see someone offer their place in line for sale.
