Vintage Sennheiser 421s

Im going to check out 2 vintage Sennheiser 421s today. Owner said they are 40 years old and he's the original owner. Hasn't used them in years.

How do these compare to newer 421s?

The new ones were designed to replicate the old ones, just designed to be easier to manufacture (ie: less labour required).

If the 421 was still made the same way it would be about double the price (about the same as the 441).

So, there is not a lot of difference, though the old one is often preferred - but don't ask me why.
