Good job HHDB. That's fantastic. Can't wait.

Frank: if you get the full size pictures let me know.

Frank,
Does the FBS mark have to be an importer? Is it possible that this may be a US government mark and the F is for Federal  ??? ???
Just a wild guess with no backing to it but I thought that in the 20s/30s depression there may have been government controls on imports of luxury goods which may have required such a mark ??? ???
I'm sure this mystery will be solved sooner rather than later.

In the latest thread we just now have it confirmed as a Trade Mark. So clearly a company.

I'm going to guess that in this context it doesn't mean "Fetal Bovine Serum"?  ::)

sorry guys and gals - my brother (with the pics) works offshore (on the rigs) so hasn't had our little signature at the front of his 'to do' list.  I do want to get the piccies I hope he's got to you and will chase him on this - on this - Sorry!

patience is a virtue (she's also very pretty!)

Henry, what's your brother's name and which rig is he on?
My son might be able to inspire him to come up with a photograph.

My book just went to print so I guess I won't have the benefit of the pictures for my publication, despite all my valiant efforts in tracking down HHDB.    :'(
