    Any help appreciated, I've got a King Edward serial# 617573 HC with a broken staff. Can anyone help with sourcing??

    I am away from my references right now but you are dealing with what would be a Rockford model 10. I hope that gives you a bit of help.

    I will check back if you still need info.

    Model 10, then. I think Dashto has those, I'll email him. Thanks so much. BTW What reference might you be using?

    Reference to identifying the model?

    This link will get you to the Rockford database, just enter the sn and click on any field that is listed below. You can use Rockford article below (Artzner) to get some idea of model recognition.
    Will, Dashto has a ref chart for staffs. Model 10 uses a 545 or 560 (or 660), I can't read the latter very well. Remove yours and compare.
    I appologize but got busy when I got home and did everything else but look up the staff number. I will make a note and try to confirm it again tonight. DA

    Again, I appreciate your efforts. I had used the Database before and it simply described the model as "special". Grade 845. I'm hoping the model 10 staff is the ticket. I emailed an order but Tom at Dashto is out of town for a while.
