I consider trading in my Geoff Gould Graphite CS 5 and get an Alembic instead. It would be so nice if you could help with additional information about 1997 Orion 5 Mahogany/Zebrawood #97OW11235 USA.

Many thanks.

That is very kind of you. These pictures were shot by previous owner. My precious needs some good cleaning and polishing, though.
