I need a clear glass crystal for a 405-477. Having no luck finding one.
Will purchase or trade.
PM if you have one. Thanks!
Same crystal as the "Banner".
Will take a G-S (lucite) as last resort.

I like a challenge . I think I can help you with your crystal need and in glass.
Could you post a picture of the case, just to be sure.

Hi Liz,

I think the case number should be 405 447, rather than 477. In either case, I have an original factory Gruen glass crystal if you still need it.

Regards,

Cary

Hi, Cary -

One would think so because I just removed the crystal from the Banner and it's a perfect fit in this one , but...

I guess it could be a mis-stamp. It doesn't show up on any crystal list.

This is why I need a new crystal...

Yes, yes! I'll take it. I've been searching for one of these for over 2 years. They seem to be in short supply.

I just finished one very similar to that! Will be beautiful when you get the new crystal in there!

Love them anyway.
