Every so often I get a bit lucky when it comes to finding Al Cass pieces.

Yesterday was no exception and I am now the proud owner of another original Al Cass Custom 1-28 piece. (in fact I was lucky enough to buy 2 different 1-28’s just yesterday after months of searching)

What is so unusual about this piece is 1) It’s never been used and 2) It’s inscribed as a custom piece.

From my investigations and  collecting these pieces to have a piece inscribed as a custom put’s it up there with the very rariest of Al Cass pieces – you are talking just a few of these circulating worldwide.

Where the mystery lies is in discovering who this piece was intended for?

The marking are 1-28 Custom C-13 B-S

Anyone out there have an idea who this might have been for?

What I do know is that this piece came from the file collection of Steve Cass and it was part of the used/made for someone of  ‘note’
