Does anybody recognize this grinder? Or have any idea where I should look for info on a vintage(?) Gaggia grinder. Trying to get any info I can on its age or any history behind it. My google searches haven't revealed a lot of info about Gaggia grinders other than the (in)famous MDF.

Dave, I actually have no idea. Was that a guess or are you somewhat confident it's that vintage?
