    That thing really needs some sort of amber or blue stain to really bring out the quilt. It looks good up close, but not that much from afar.

    maybe a black dye would serve it well.

  5. Yeah, that really doesn't look like 5A grade to me.
     
  6. I'm pretty sure those grades are just made up.

    Doesn't look 5A to me either. How much is it?

    Dang!

    Okay, I've been found out. Just don't tell the others, okay?

    Just between us, I made that crap up in like 1973.

    Looks like possibly a real nice top to me but bad lighting and camera work is distorting it. You might be pleasantly suprised when you see it in person.

    Sure doesn't look like 5A to me. Might look a lot better with a different stain, though.
