Thanks man... I really enjoy how intact this one is.  I don't know if it's been run/worn much.

Near Mint! It looks like that has had some care over the years, probably the original band too...

I think this is the "D" variant...or at least we have three other similar ID'ed as "D" variant.

I'd simply add the "D" variant without going thru the "red zone" based on this being an oversight, but I don't have the admin privileges to do so.

This is a beautiful example of the "Cadet" Plainsmen. Is this one of the Bulovas you were talking about going for cheap? I have got to find out where you are shopping.
