Pics of the left reed pan as requested. Note that some of the valves had curled and have been replaced.

Hey, so I don't know much about these late Wheatstones, and I'm wondering whether it could serve as a upgrade from my (very decent) c. 1949 Wheatstone I bought from Ben a couple years ago. What is the action like on these? It looks like the reed pans are a bit less annoying than on my Wheatstone - the reeds just slide out like in good quality reedpans rather than being bunged in with clips. Anybody have any thoughts? In my kind of simplistic idea of Wheatstone production I have the impression that earlier is better but it would be good to hear other opinions...
