I picked this neat counter display up at a local swap meet years ago. The box was missing half of the units at the time. Over the years I was fortunate enough to find five more NOS boxed ones to complete the display. These really do work well at tightening up the front end of your T.

Steve, I took a better photo of the back board at full res. You can photo shop it, blow it up, print it out and glue it to a backboard for your display room.

Here's the link:
