Sounds amazingly good for such a small machine.

Here's my choice for a small machine. It may be a small machine but it was a big purchase for me. At Union in 2013 my big purchase was a very nice Johnson C. I brought it home polished it a bit and invited DeeDee to the basement to take a look. She was very polite and said all the right things and then said that it sure looks like this one and pointed to a nice little Vic E front mount. She was right, the Johnson C and pre-dog Vic E look very similar. The cabinets are the same size with similar corner columns and the horns are of similar size. The Johnson C is earlier and much more unusual but they do look similar. The Vic E is worth about 25% of the value of the Johnson C. My goal as a collector is to make my collection interesting. I didn't regret my decision to buy the C but I wondered if it made my collection more interesting. My goal this year was to buy something that couldn't be confused with something else in my collection. I think I was successful. Jerry Blais

No, I don't think that will be mistaken as similar to anything else... :D
