Wow! that's a blast from the past. You and me, brother. His chopped New Service was an inspiration to me. I've been looking for one for 25 years.

I have no pics, but George Matthews had a shop I believe in Downey, Calif. (Matthews & Son). I went there once when I was pretty young with my Dad when he had him repair a WWII Luger I believe that belonged to a family friend. Probably not there anymore I'd suppose. We're going back a looong time here.

Robbt....you might send our good friend Patrick Sweeney a PM on here..he might be able to provide a point of contact for Mr. Clapp, I can't remember which publishing group Mr. Clapp writes for but Patrick should be able to. Happy Thanksgiving to all--John
