    Here's a full set of Helicore solos gauge strings for sale. Not sure of their age, but they're in very good shape. Just pulled them off an old Kay I recently bought, and the previous owner was elderly and rather frail and hasn't been playing much in recent years (i.e., only drove to church on Sundays, ETC.).

    They don't appear to have been clipped. There's no separation of any of the windings. Minimal fraying of the silks on the pegbox ends. Mild discoloration on a few spots on each string, but overall they're clean and pretty smooth. They sounded pretty zingy on the 1944 Kay M-1.

    **If the title of this post reads "FOR SALE", the strings are still available.**
