Can you all please identify this front end I have here? I brought home loads of British parts, this was among the piles. MSS or MAC? Value?

I am guessing a Scrambler, based on the brake and the pinch bolt going into the steering stem on the top triple tree. Value - $2-300 to some one who needs the bits, would be my guess.

Pre and Post war MACs used that front hub/brake, also early MSS.
Later they all went to the full width hub -as on MSS, VM, VR.
Forks are Velo telescopics as used on all post war models (after the brief Dowtys era).

On the top yoke there's that screw that looks like a locking screw that could lock the top yoke to the steering stem.
Maybe used on scrambler?
If they're scrambler forks they should have the double-damped dampers inside. Are the damper rods missing?
The last pic is odd because the top yoke is placed on upside down.
