No USA Florida Link

No USA Florida Link .105
This is a Florida Link I bought off ebay awhile ago.  I bought it because it was refaced and the seller didn’t know who had done it.  When I saw the pictures I  was pretty confident that it was Theo Wanne’s work. I can’t be 100% certain but I’ve had a few links that he had refaced and the tip looked just like this one. they have a very distinct look to them.  It played well when I got it but the facing felt shorter than I like so I sent it to Brian Powell to lengthen to 25mm.

This  link as that core link sound to it. Everytime I play it I can imagine Coltrane playing a link like this and getting that classic link sound. You always hear all these players talking about Florida Links and after playing this one I can see why!
