If they aren't Atomix (highly likely, most common source -- old Sansuis) then they are a Coral OEM.

Look like 10" and in excellent shape. If the alnico hasn't been abused over the last 40 years these should be quite nice (i have 1 very similar)

Yep, he's been to eBay. He must have dug deeper than me.

I knew I shouldn't have asked here!

I've got a pair of the 4" holy basket ones and these looked so similar (but bigger). And, they're local, so no worries about damage in the mail...

Damn! Now I'll have to compete...

Got a response from the seller (yes, they are on the 'bay) - "I think they were called Sonoco's and were either a copy of or model of Coral. They had the leafy metal front grill."
And they are 10". So I'm still in the dark - but I'll grab them if no-one else is interested.

I think I'm going to keep an eye on this seller. He/she's just posted up some 1970 Phillips AD5060/M8 fullrange drivers.

dave, don't forget to post that woofer when you get home, .

Except for the cone colour, pretty close to "yours"
