I bought this used a couple of years ago. The previous owner added new rubber stoppers to the non spike side of the legs as well as some new nuts and bolts. He included a bag of some of the original nuts and bolts which I will also pass along. I used this tripod with a Calumet C1. Was a good user for me, not the same performance of the new style Ries but worked well enough, much better than something too small. Not sure of the date but I've seen pictures of EWeston and Adams with a similar style Ries... I'm asking $375 via USPS money order. I think it would be best to ship this beast in the CONUS. References available. Prefer to ship UPS. The pictures should tell the story.
