Re: Jawa 12 back open bubble

Its a 12 back so will always draw attention. For me the bubble isn't an issue but the combination of that and the nameplate cut is. eBay would probably be the best bet for this one. But my advice would be, look at past ebay sales for 12 back cardback with nameplate cut and add complete figure, I wou...
