Hard to tell if the back is plated or SS; what do you have there Bill?

Other posts show plated back as Statesman, and SS back as Delegate.

Linebooks do not state caseback material, so no help there. Obvious difference between the two in ads and linebooks is the band.

Hey Ken. That's what i was going by was the threads from days gone by. Says the Statesman has gf back. This one is gf back, not stainless

Just for reference, both of these models were listed in the linebook 132 from 1957

In reply to by Andersok

I wonder if the both just didn't state the back material, or do they imply a full rolled gold plate case?

As always....questions and more questions....

Statesman seems to be a good fit.
