I see now. The real on is lower.


No, not true. The real one is not lower. The replica is pretty much a spot on copy of the Leslie low-profile 5-chime manifold. Ken used an original to get the correct dimensions when he modified a standard 5-chime (S5T) manifold. He marked it as a replica so it would never be sold as an original at an inflated price.

Oh, the original appeared lower.

1. It was a real S3j. 2. It was stolen, not collected.
