I'm surprised there's not more interest in this:

Yes, late Sprint heads have an embossed '2' cast in next to the AM logo and also on the front end, so this head is an early one.

Nah, not me, I already have two NOS 'on the shelf' that I'll probably never be able to bring myself to use!

One was advertised a short while ago with a four figure 'buy it now' and it appeared to sell, so if this does go for a low price, someone will be kicking themselves!

It won't go for £205 though, as the high bidder has edged their bet!
