Ck out my store 3fingermac, same on eBay. Also looking for Bocote Lion Steel Barlow's,2, either blade. All right clean out those safes. I appreciate any help you can give. It's Christmas time and since I'm only relative I have left I intend to treat myself. Hit me here or mp95b20@gmail.com. Thanks again y'all greatly appreciated. Mac

By must be a single blade, I mean any single blade pattern. I only need one 77 Yankee and they're all single blades. Thanks again y'all. Mac

Here are the two 141118 "Tom's Choice" Barlows. Very nicely made. Sweet in hand as well.

You can see my store 3fingermac . Look and see if you'd like to trade for something there. Mac you'll have to price yours.

I checked on eBay, looks like your 14s are hitting 300. After fees , shipping,ins, and signature confirmation, you'd still clear 250. I bought em originally for 120. But they're yours that's best I can find. It's what you want for it that counts. It might be worth more or less depending on how bad one wanted it.

Mac thank you for your posts which are helpful. I got these from Charlie and have not kept track of the collector interest. Seems mine have the 'rounded' handle of which there are fewer than the 'regular' handle.
I need to think about this for a bit. I will email in the next day or 2.
Again, thanks for posting the info.

Everyone I've ever seen had the rounded handles. Never knew they was any other kind. But these aren't my patterns. Anytime Mac

90% of the 141118 barlows had a more chamfered edge to the handles. The more rounded edges on Rolands example were distributed by one dealer only. These were finished after the annual GEC shutdown. The more common model looks like this pic.

Rob, thank you for this very specific information. I do not have this 'deep' GEC knowledge and am grateful for those who do.
