mics and valves and stuff

Some questions ....

I was in NYC yesterday and saw, in a junk store, what looked to me
like an original Astatic JT-30. It was grey or silver, not green, and
did not have an XLR connection, instead it was just a screw-on thing
with the hot line in the middle and an outside ground. Unfortunately
the guy was askign $110 for it and there was no way to tesst it. That
being too much money for me, I passed. Was that the real thing?

Also, does anyone know how long ago Hohner started using plastic
valves and stopped using the leather ones?
