1921 blue print

I've seen them go for much cheaper than that at gun shows. This guy says it is an original, but what difference does that make?
A blueprints a blueprint whether it's 80 years old or 80 minutes.
I'd rather put the $510 towards a "L" drum fund myself...

All kidding aside, I agree with Ben. Brullen is no idiot.

You may be new here, but you are a breath of fresh air. Of course there is tremendous significance pertaining to an original 1921 TSMG blueprint. The "blueprints" that sell at gun shows are obviously copies. The reason some ridicule ebay is because there is a record of the selling price for all to see. The absurd money spent on dubious items at gun shows are always later described as incredible bargains. Why? Beacuse there is no public record of the sale.

It would be worth the risk, to just own such a thing. It would look great on my wall with all my moden copies of the 1928 drawing that I own.
I will not surprised if it does sell for a big price.

There were two drawings for sale on ebay. The other one went for about $350 (same seller). I have contacted the buyer of the "cheaper" one, and he has agreed to make some copies for me to buy. You may see them in VA at the TCA show. Maybe if you want one (but like me cannot afford the original) you too should contact the sellers.
Amazingly, the ammonia story has already helped clear up my sinuses....!
