Vintage Pletscher cargo rack?

Is this old rack worth anything to the vintage crowd?
I know nothing about these as i'm just getting into old school stuff!

I may be wrong but, I think..... 1) the factory is still cranking them out. 2) that one is mounted slightly wrong. there appears to be 2 small plates missing where it attaches to the stays plus the part that is there is backwards.

Yeah the bracket is backwards,the spacing there on my tall frame wouldn't allow it to mount properly.
Thx for the info,so i guess it's not worth anything.

+1 It is missing a part. They are going for about $10 on ebay. Personally, I much prefer the vintage Blackburn racks.
