    They didn't use OB after the 20's

    The founder Engelhart went down on the Titanic but his daughter was saved.

    The MX Sport gets the Gold !!!!!

    Happy Hunting !

    I have found many O B rings in old swimming sites. But I have never found or even seen markings like that on a Barton ring. That information was interesting that you posted as well. Iím guessing that ring may be from the 80ís or 90ís at the latest.
