Lesser-known Filofaxes - the Winchester Iguana

Diving into Vintage Filofax-models this time I'd like to showcase The Winchester 4CLF IG Iguana Personal. It is a quite rare creature and not often seen in any of the markets and I got by chance one that is a little damaged.

The model

The Iguana has the classic Winchester-style features which means two big gusseted full-height pockets, two smaller pockets and no credit card slots as those were not interesting for a binder in its time. It features the standard 7/8"-rings (23mm) and can be discussed into laying flat quite easily. It was only in researching the model that I found out that there once have been quite many colours to choose from and that there has been a four-ring Pocket-edition too. At the time of writing this I have only seen a yellow one which I hope to be able to add soon too.
