The Silver Sevens on the table are the ONLY set in existence, they are the FIRST set of Silver Sevens that were manufactured for the photo shoot when the SIlver Seven line was still in concept & design. They are Silver Seven V1 Prototype 1, serial # 0001 L & R.

We also own:
Silver Six V1 Prototpe 1 serial # 0001 L & R,
Silver Seven V2 (the ones you have) Prototype 1 serial # 0001 L & R,
Silver Nine V1 prototype 1 serial # 0001 L & R

They are modded for sure. The power section has a pair of meters in it rather than singles and there are two transformers on the tube section. Gotta be a reworking of them. Could also be the long awaited all new Silver Seven. We need LOTS of pics of these and a review for sure.
