Do we think they made a number if variation if this case with different mounts? The case style might just be the only variation which would place it as a Sea King 'D'

So we go with either a tentative Sea King 'D' based on the case design or we leave it as a confirmed Sea King.

Thoughts?

Usual practice is"nearest to", and if this is the only ad for this style with those truncated lugs, it would be the "D" variant.

Hang on a minute - I don't see that ad on site? Can we see the full page on that one please? The lugs still look different to me.
