I had a friend of mine drop buy my shop looking at my tools and equipment and as he came across my reproduction pattern makers vice asked what I knew about them. I told him that I had paid around $350 for the reproduction but original vises where worth much more up to the $1200 range or more. He then said I have one that looks like yours but bigger. I said sounds like the real thing why don’t you bring it by and we will take a look.
He went home and found his was the real thing and had also found one on e bay for $1100 . Since he had not sold anything on e bay before I agreed to help him sell it on e bay. This vise has had some repairs but I think it’s still a good tool. My friend has been out of work for some time so if your interested in a real Emmert pattern makers vice take a look at the link perhaps it will be a win win situation for both of you.
