Yeah, the Birmals are great. I've seen one of yours and it's different from the 2 I have, they are really quite rare it seems!

I thought I had a new, unused metal Dayton, but I can't find it, which is really annoying

I was speaking to someone about these recently, and they were seemingly made after the 30's at some point with plastic buttcaps, rather than the original painted ones from the 30's. Do you know more about when the plastic buttcapped Daytons were made please?
