The lug extenders fot this Corrigan don't come up very often and can be thrown away by non-collectors because they don't recognize them.

 

I think only a couple of members here actually have them.

Good hunting!

I know how rare they are, if I get my hands on one ill have a pair made
By casting the original. It will be worth it.

Corrigan, I need to see what one of the extenders looks like to see if I might be able to come up with one or more.

Always nice to see a Corrigan, it's a beauty. My advice is to GLUE that thing down if you don't have the spring bars that go through the it completely. I lost it off mine once, took me two hours to find it.

Yea I don't want that to happen, I'm shy one pin
That goes through, not wearing it till I get the proper
Pin, thanks for the heads up, I might just glue
It anyway.

Bending the end slightly has worked for me on loose case and band pins in the past, it secures them well, but additional glueing in the "belt and braces/suspenders" manner can only be to the good.
(Did you notice how I used the Americanism for braces?) ; )

JP I have a Corrigan with two different extenders. I'm almost positive one of them is the origional. I've weekend guests that will leave this afternoon and when they do maybe I can take a couple pics of each and post them. I'd be willing to send my correct one out as the model if I could get into the deal on one of the copies.
