Thanks Ed, I had seen references to rusticated Omega on other sites and ebay.  For the life of me I could not find any or remember ever seeing anything besides smooth/carved.

Thanks
John

John, We/Grabow "monkeyed around" with the color and carving on the Omega. There are some strange "scrappers" out there.

Early Omega smooth was purple.... That's a start...  td

The way I understand it any rough machine or hand tool  made surface is considered rustication.

One or two if the 'scrappers' I've seen had the old Silver Duke type rustication, which has some small lines added to the larger carving...though not quite wire carving.

Thanks you Sirs, I just may need to add a couple of Omegas to my cluster of smoke generators.  I thought I was starting the new year PAD free... Smile
