  Dave S., where did you get that E.P. Alexander quote from?  I'd very much like to know the context in which he said/wrote it.

Thanks in advance,
Pete

It's just a joke, Pete. A takeoff from the movie, The Edge, where Anthony Hopkins tells Alec Baldwin, "Never feel sorry for a man who owns an airplane."
Later,
Dave Slemmer

Very Cool !  Mike, it seems to me that an original surviving field carriage is even more impressive than the howitzer itself! Correct me if
I am wrong but most, if not all the carriages were burned after the war. I would think any carriage made of wrought iron would be rusted into oblivion by now.  What is the difference in value with an original carriage vs a repro?

 Steve Sylvia should do the price guide that way.

Poor-                                 Not much
Fair-                                   A little
Good-                                Not a bunch
Great-                                 A bunch
Excellent-                          A whole bunch
