    $6000, that's a lot of money. Do you have a link to the Colt ?

    Suspect it was worth 8-10K.

    It's a sold GB auction; just done.Don't have a GB account, so can't see past auction results. Those with accounts can, I understand.

    It pays to watch my auctions. I do give away the occasional bargain.

    What was the name(s) on the 1956 test target/assembler card?
    Do you recall?
    Another piece of Python history to file away...

    A.A. Goodwin on the assembler card. I can't make out the signature on the test target.

    The signature on the test target is H. Rush or maybe S.T Rush. I have seen a number of targets signed by him and sometimes it looks like H and sometimes ST. In my database of Colt test targets, I have examples signed by him from 1948 to 1961.

    Thanks!
    The name Goodwin in this regard is familiar. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd Python assembler?
