303 British Clip Makers query


#1

I have been compiling a list of 303 clip makers and require the makers of the following and hope that someone can help or point me in the appropriate direction.
Mark 4 P&S, MB in circle, AS in square, MR with X in circle, JPjoined.
Mark IV S,
Mark III F, O (large circle),
Mark II with nib g (this is the old style)
Mark II with and without nib V, W
Unknown Mark B in circle, E in circle, C

I realise pictures would be ideal, but I don’t have all the clips, in some cases just a snippet of information.

LesB,

Your “Unknown Mark” probably has four long slots in the base but no crosswise stiffening ribs (like on the Mark II’s). If that is the case then they are Mark I’s. The “O Large Circle” is from the Netherlands.
