Thanks for the photos of your "new" boards. I know both of the early Bings you bought recently. I did an appraisal on one and considered buying the other once. I didn't buy either boards, obviously, as I'm a partly recovering bingaholic now, and I'm glad to see they went to you, especially the one with the inlaid, offset figure 8 stringers. Hope you have a place in your shop to display them.
I'll forward your emails to Bing and we'll ask him to make you birth certificates for both boards.
Thank you for the photos (finally!) of your DT. I was really keen to see it, given that yours is the earliest one I've come across yet.
