#1




I have a 37 x 137R 1pdr that I would like to know who mfg. and what the H.S. means.
I dont know if I photographed right side up or not. Its a diamond with a elongated C inside the diamond and XXXXO inside the elongated C.
Thanks,
Bob Ruebel

Thank you for fixing my photo. I am having trouble getting a image large enough thru photoimpressions.

Thank you Hammer. That was easy. Now I need for some one to identify this headstamp.
Thanks again,
Bob R.

The manufacturer of you case is “Norman Fishbone”. What you see on the case head is the company Logo.

Something fishy about that answer.

This is the answer to your question from Rbt. Mellichamp- world’s expert on the subject of 37mms. “The headstamp is for Johnston and Sekendoft of New York. I believe that they were only agents like Stokes Kirk or ships outfitters like Bannerman. My case looks like UMC manufacture but this is a guess.” I hope that he will get interested in the forum and answer some of these questions directly.

Sorry, that’s all I got to know. CSAEOD will certainly enlighten us about this matter.
