Hi, folks:

I've been having some trouble with this one. The color is more of a salmon-red. I believe it is a type A51a (I have never identified one of these type before)...please see pic below:




There is no grill and it believe it to wove paper as it has a snap when flicked with about 1/2" showing from edge of tweezers. p12x12




Thanks!
Steve
