A Vox AC-15.... A Celestion Alnico Blue is even better..

If you had 4 I would have said Marshall......
Ehhh I dunno man, I like the Blues a tiny bit better for cleans, not that the Greenback's a slouch there, but for anything mid-gain and up it's not even a contest -- I like the Greenback waaaay more.

I found Celestion G12H30, Pulsonic cone, greenback speakers from 1972, reference T1976, 16 ohm, for a good price, around 160 EUR. This type T1976 was not used in Marshalls but in Armstrong. T1976 is a G12H Celestion greenback model often found in old Laney supergroup, Laney klipp, and Dan Armstrong cabinets. It has a 75Hz cone and silver dust cap.
Maybe this is an inferior Greenback, or do you think it can be same quality like classic Greenback T1221 and the famous ones?
Honestly, I couldn't really tell you. I see Greenback, and I'm pretty happy, especially if it's broken in -- these really need to be IMO.
I have Vox Amps with Celestion Alnico Blue & Greenback Speakers.. I find it just the opposite. The Greenback is Cleaner sounding.. I also have a Marshall Amp with 4 G12H30’s that sounds great too... You can’t go wrong in any of those combinations IMO...

Hey man, I purchased 1931 A, it is small A with only one speaker, open back, plays really great, even if it is that ordinary non-famous 75w speaker for jcm900 cabs. I wanna switch it for greenback anyway, it will be even much better and I am afraid of difference in impedance (pa head has 16 ohm and this speaker 8ohms).
