MRT cheek pad value
 
Hi gentlemen, I have a cheek pad that I have had for better than 40 yrs. It appears to be NOS it has 3 dark gray felt pads a package w/ 2 brass screws and a leather lace, additionally the the brass eyelets have green stuff growing on them that I have cleaned up with a Q-tip. the back flap has MRT11-62 embossed on it. I read that they are worth less than a (K-line), will y'all hazard a guess to its possible worth? I would like to post a picture, but I don't know and to old to learn. I can send an email picture if someone can post a picture.
Thanks , Jim

A NOS 60's cheek pad usually run 325-450, the early 50's units are bringing a premium, 20-30% more.
