Hey, it's a '"54" hodge-podge with a bad VIN and crappy pictures. It's also an "Iron Clock" model, which can only add to the value. Cha-ching!

I’d say it’s a K case and they welded up where they relocated the cylinder stud holes. You can see where the XL cylinder bases kinda overhang on the case sides.

Obviously that’s why the price is higher. All that extra work to get it that way.
