Exclamation Western electric 756a 10" loudspeaker

Picked up a great condition WE 756A loudspeaker yesterday. Tested with ohm meter and everything checks out. This is a pre Altec production fyi. I've been reading that the 755 is a highly sought after speaker and this is it's bigger, nicer brother. Worth?

I dont know what the fuss is about these speakers but it must do something very well. In 1996 or thereabouts I had and sold one to a friend who buys and sells in China, He gave me 1500 back then. I wouldnt be supprised if they dont bring 2,000 or better today.
I always seem to find them in singles...Due to the mono age I suppose.

i've seen them go for two grands+ before. had a quick listen with friend's, too, but i'd definitely sell for that kind of money if i had a pair.

Exclamation

Still has what I can only assume, are the original speaker wires connected to it as well.

Exceptionally nice example. I'd give it a 9+ out of 10 for condition, while it's not perfect the lettering appears complete on the label, you seldom see them with the gold WE transfers fully intact. You did quite well with that find.
