>> Thanks to everyone who responded to my efforts in finding a Collins 51S-1 receiver. One has been found at a decent price however two things are needed to improve the cosmetics. First it has a KWM-2 case but the rig has the standard 51S-1 trim ring without the holes for the screws on the lid of the KWM-2. The one I have looks very good so perhaps I could trade for a KWM-2 trim ring or buy one that someone may have.

>> Second, the AF gain knob is not original and needs to be replaced with an original which I would be happy to buy from someone.
>>
>> Otherwise the receiver appears to be in good shape with the tuning brake and serial number 3532. Hopefully someone can help me improve the looks of this amazing receiver.

>> Thanks so much
