I'm just finishing off a long term project of mine today, a small crown 6217-8000 from April 1966.



The thing that amazed me was the crown seal is still supple, so much so that I thought I'd pressure test it. I've never seen a waterproof small crown 62mas before.



Just thought I'd share as I was quite surprised!

That's super cool! Nice to see that gem brought back to life and still waterproof with just a single o-ring seal.
