I'm considering these Vintage FLORSHEIM Imperial Wingtips:http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-FLORSHEI...QQcmdZViewItem
Having just seen J's thread selling a pair of (slightly larger) Florsheims, can you experts out there tell me something about these shoes. I notice these don't have the double row of nails in the heel, does that mean they're of a lesser quality despite the "Imperial" name (and hence worth << $70)?
I notice that the medallions on the right shoe look like they have slightly large holes. Does that point toward a cleaning/restoration of the upper? (Strikes me as something that could occur, having spent some time looking at the shoe restoration photo essay on the wiki.)
