This is so great!! I remember seeing your posts over the years looking for it. I'm so happy you finally did. :)
I have to ask, how did you know this particular one was yours? I assume there must be some specific identifiers on it that you were able make. Is it in completely different condition than how it was when it left your family originally?
Yes, the post you are thinking of wasn't mine, but that post also drove me to get this one back. Luckily I knew where my grandfather's ended up when my uncle let it go. It was a matter of finding the right people to help me get it back. Fortunately it all worked out.
