I just wanted to post some pics of some of my hubs. I also have some hub parts I am not sure what they are. Hopefully somebody can help me figure out what they are.

The known:

Wore out three sets of tires already!
The Atherton? looks identical to my Atherton I just found. Atherton is in script and the patent date is May 13 1902 Made in Buffalo NY. No writing on hub shell.

The early Atherton had an oiling port and later had no port.
Atherton was bought by General Motors in 1919 and hub manufacturing was discontinued in favor of bearing production.
I have the early model. It uses a much smaller brake arm than the later hub.

Is the oiling port in center of hub shell? If so, then mine doesnt have it.
Any idea what these things are worth in rough shape?

Here is the 1909 Atherton hub with oil port.

Here is the later version Atherton hub without the oil port and with an incorrect New Departure arm.

Oil port

Nope mine dont have them. Thanks for the info i have 4 of these and like 2 extra shells but no arms. The other hub really have no idea on what those parts go to.

Here is what I have. Axle is bent and threads pretty mashed up. Plating is flaking in some spots and alot looks wore of from a hub shiner. But it functions. No oiling port. Id like to know what the age of it is. how hard to find the matching front. And what kind of money it is worth incase I decide to sell/trade it (not planning to as of yet).

Your hub is an early one because it has the early model brake arm.
Price depends on condition of the bearing races, internals and the brake arm to hub tolerances.
My Atherton hub had a lot of wear on the bearing race, where it mates to the brake arm hole.
I will need to machine a new bearing race and silver solder up the brake arm hole and re-mill a more precise slot. Then the hub will need to be nickel plated. The plater that I am using will re-engrave the brake arm script.
