The Model Dose will be taking a hiatus for a bit. I have a procedure tomorrow that will limit my activities again for a few days or so. If all goes well and according to my doctor, I will be back to almost normal sometime next week. This has been an ordeal, but thankfully after the infection cleared, my eyes were not as bad as he originally thought. In the meantime, take care and stay safe everyone.

So good to hear the encouraging news and thanks for the pictures. I too have this model and the red/black versions. The details of the top mechanism are outstanding.

Danbury Mint's versions of the '57 Retractable were (in my opinion) so much better than Franklin Mint's.  The difference in look is noticed when they are next to each other.  GREAT PHOTOS JOHN!
