Default What edging should a pair of Lowther PM6s have?

I've got a pair here they're the early type with the square frame. They have a very strange edging on them, it's a whole piece of material that also covers the back of the frame. I think something the previous owner has put on, anybody know if this was a production thing or a well known modification?

I'll get some pictures up tomorrow when I've gotten home.

Late 50's to early 60's Lowthers used a 3mm flat plastic foam surround, which overlapped the outer perimeter of the bowl shaped sub-chassis.It can look a little untidy as the it was hand fitted and tensioned very carefully to offer edge dampening of the cone, without causing it to go out of shape. atnatt ,you must work long hours or live a long way from home.

looks nothing like that. It's fabric or skin, looks very much home made. Still they were free so can't complain too much.

EDIT: Quite away from home! It's quite busy here at the moment. I'll put pictures up as soon as I have returned home!
