On Training Wheels
Pump box details, the inner box is painted brass. I would love to figure out what tools are missing from the finely stitched tool organizer. When I opened this box today it was so exciting! You could hear something inside; to think I may have been the first person to open the box in 120+ years! It gave me thoughts about what Howard Carter must have felt when he first entered King Tut's tomb...

It's because of beautiful specimens like that why I enjoy bicycle so much

On Training Wheels
If I counted correctly, the front is a 32-spoke wheel and the rear is a 36. I can think of a lot of reasons why the rim stampings might be different, either on purpose or just through inventory management. While shops often stocked undrilled rims, I would bet the manufacturers received them drilled, or had their own drilling setups and the stock of differently drilled rims would not always be 'in-synch'. Ditto for built-up wheels.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Tool technology update: I've used this latest modification to retrieve my last Rambler tag. It's a threaded rod with a short hanger wire hook attached. There is much more control of the hook. None of the deflection seen in a hanger wire. And, if you need to move a leather plug, as I did with this one, there is more control in that too. Still a little risk pulling the tag out past the plug still in the tube, so be careful. I got lucky with this one.

First time seeing a stamped/written combination for the made date. All previous have been hand written, usually in red ink.

Brant, were you ever able to pull the leather plug and access the tag? I was thinking a small plastic pipe on a low pressure vacuum hose for the plug.
