There is one for sale on FleaBoy @£29.99 (Buy It Now price) - presume that is where the pics came from. Wouldn't hold out for finding a match, though.
For sidefills, can we have two enormous things of a type that might be venerated as Gods by the inhabitants of Easter Island, capable of reaching volumes that would make Beelzebub soil his pants.

That would be a good one for the Museum. Arthur Barns would know, he had Fane in the '60's, not sure whether his sons would know anything.

I assume that it is just a simple phenolic dome tweeter under that front. Alnico magnet though.

They dont seem to worth anything,one sold last year for just a pound!

Hello,

Yes it has been over five years, but good things come to those... 

I've just been clearing out the attic and I have found a pair of these as well as a pair of the Richard Allan mid units that came with them (one of which needs a new coil).

If anyone is interested then give a shout. Apparently similar to some Celestion tweeter from back in the (good old) days.

Regards, 
Tom.
