    Great restauration. One very small remark on your polishing pads. The pink one is 12.000 instead of 1.200. You forgot a 0.

    A Chestnut to chew on, as follows:

    *Second made by Comoy’s,
    Nomenclature: Gresham Giant – OVAL SHANK WITH TAPERED STEM
    Football shape STAMP or F/B for short:
    MADE
    IN
    LONDON
    ENGLAND
    COMOY’S 309XL = 309 LIVERPOOL, str., XL
    ** XL=extraordinare shape
    “I believe this stamp was first used in the export drive in the early 1950s, and I have not seen any pre-WW II Comoy’s stamped in this way.”
