    I can’t find a reference to this in Hunn’s book. It migrated here from Sweden back around 1930, according to the owner..

    Kinda looks like this one, and is likely missing a rudder. Any Swede’s in the club that can translate?

    If thats a battery ignition, then that is the first-year version, 1912 model. Most of the ads tout the magneto ignition (which started in 1913) and the fact that the submersible parts are made of brass. The company is also looking for sales agents, not surprisingly..

    It looks like the mounting plate for the magneto is still attached to the tank.
