I'm glad to hear its not a Whitney, this was the evaluation of a local 
who may have seen only one applecrab in her life. I really appreciate 
your opinion of the picture. So you don't think its a Whitney? Is it 
too oblong for a Whitney? Aren't Whitneys more round?
It definately isn't a Kerr. I have Kerrs. And its not a Chestnut Crab, 
have those too. Could it be a Centennial or Trailman, something from 
Jung's, I'll have to find an old Jung catalog and find out the 
options.
