I'm in, Dupage is always full of surprises. Why are the split backs more than twice the price of hard backs?

Good question...the description says the split backs are the improved design. Which I thought was an improved manufacturing process not necessarily improved functionality. I always thought the hardbacks were more desirable/collectable...wouldn't be the first time I was wrong!!

taken from page 3 of the link below. I believe the split backs were either easier or cheaper to produce then the hardbacks. One good thing is there are some SEY split back copies but to the best of my knowledge no copies of the hardback SEY.

Terminology:
Hardback- Original USGI one piece formed steel without cuts and welds on the back corners with
reinforcing grooves running the length of the sides of the magazines. Distinctively heavy and solid feeling.

Split back- Original USGI one piece flat steel punched out and then formed so that the back makes a wing
onto each side where the metal is welded together. The process forms a gap at the center sides of the
banana back. They are not two pieces welded together, but all in one piece stamped, cut, and welded.

Does anyone mind sharing the shipping cost? Don't want to go thru the process of entering order info and find out that shipping is excessive. John
