I have one from 07/53, if this is any help.ovalis wrote:This will be a tough one because there doesn't seem to be a lot out there, but I'm trying to gather some information on these tanks to get a rough idea of how many of these were produced and when. So if any of you out there have one and can provide the original hydro date and serial #, I would greatly appreciate it.
I have 6 of these tanks and the spread of serial #'s are as follows:
April '53: 4422
July '53: 4914-5672
Nov. '53: 6223-6582
It looks as if Pressed Steel kept a sequence of the serial # unique to these tanks, meaning the new batch produced at a later date starts with a serial # from where they left off at the old batch. I could be wrong, but that's what it's starting to look like.
I would like to also find out when they started producing these tanks. I was originally guessing 1952, but was fortunate enough to see one from 1951. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the serial # from that tank and I can't remember the month at the moment.
Thanks for the help, Mike
I have Rene's from 1954, 1956 and 1957, and all are rounded bottom.
