Help identifying a mount - is this a Giro?

Recommended Posts

I've been offered this by a friend, who has inherited it from his sadly departed father.  A bit of digging around makes me think it's a Giro of sorts, or perhaps a copy of one.

It's the head, the tripod. the second Vixen clamp and the extension bar with counterweight.  While he says I'm welcome to have it, I'd like to give him 'fair value' for the mount - any idea what they're worth?  It appears to be in very good condition.

TIA.

this is seemingly identical to my old Giro type 2.

it's a superb mount.

I'd say that what's in the pics is worth around £150-£200 used and in good condition.

As Shane said.

More likely to be the GIRO II as the Giro III would have the details acid etched on the side and you wouldn't be asking this question :D

Yep, Giro II and I agree with Shane's valuation.

Thanks guys, I didn't realise it was quite as valuable as that, I'll suggest to him that he sells it.
