I finally found a Navy Locking AE 40 for a price I can Live with. Bakelite looks great in the Pic s, seller says no chips or cracks. Missing the AE plaque on the back, but I want the locking headset device. I will post pics when I receive it.....Doug

thanks Guys and Lady.....I am quite pleased with it. I know the Chrome bands would be destroyed by the locking mechanism, but it will be safe with me. The fingerwheel is almost like silver matte like the gold matte on the better Color AE 40s.

The screws are there, but the Navy plaque is gone...bummer....if you have one PM me...Doug
