A knowledgeable, friendly eBayer advised me of the following. Just thought you might like to know. Though this is a 1977 production model. This model has been modified from its original factory. The cylinder set, steam chest and valve gear hangers came from an earlier PFM/United production run. This model has the “Inward Slant Piston Valves” configuration. The model was constructed with “Outward Slant Piston Valves” configuration. This makes this model even more rare in the extreme and your asking price should probably reflect that and be a bit higher. I thought I was the only person that had ever made this conversion. Guess I was wrong about that.
