Topic: 1870's Gherardi english horn reeds and staples

I am getting ready to make reeds for this instrument.  The staples appear hand made and each is a different size.  Some are clearly made to fit the two different bocals with different tip sizes as well.  I'm guessing as to the dimensions and will take an average of what I have.
