Solid Brass Marker found in a fry but I don't think they were original. Numbers are cast onto a solid background.

My contribution.

These are out of my St. Louis 409. They are very fragile, less than 1/8" of thin aluminum where the number joins the part that goes to the rod. It used threaded rod with nuts above to position the numbers. I had to buy a second set to get enough good ones for my pump.

Dick Bennett provided this picture and information. I have this set in my Dayton 100 pump but the cylinder is so dirty inside I have never been able to get a good look at the markers. Thanks Dick.

Can anyone identify the marker on the left? The square attachment rod is rounded on the end and the slots in the marker are longer than a Wayne. The attachment method to the rod is also quite different.

The way you folks have them displayed on the pages... To me atleast they look like small pieces of art...

I wish they weren't so darn expensive; for the originals... LOL

I think displaying them side by side would be a great display... And really show the differences and the similarities in the different Manufacturer's Gallon Markers... ( But then again; I do march "not only to a different drummer, but one seldom heard by sane individuals"... LOL)
