Back in 1994 Celestion re-issued the speaker that started it all, the Alnico Blue.

Although produced in a number of different incarnations throughout the 60s, Alnico speakers went out of production by the 1970s due to the prohibitively high cost of the rare earth elements required to manufacture the magnets.
The in the 1990s, after the discovery of a cache of practically unused original 60s Blues, Celestion's engineers got the opportunity to probe the speaker's "tonal secrets". And with the magnet materials more affordable once again, in 1994 the Alnico Blue was re-created in all its glory.
