Maybe Boots put one in, but I was nine years old in '54.

I've actually gone back to galvanized risers for rotor heads, for strength and economy, and for the weight and rigidity an impact head requires to work correctly.

No wonder you never post any pics.

Sweet !! That's a Nelson nozzle, too. Theirs were a bit different, being something like coarse-threaded copies of the 'wafer' nozzles used by Champion (and in the 'deluxe' Imperial DPU spray body) - no slot for extra close-in watering, and no real ill effects for not having it.

Some older Buckner popup bodies, with different wording, and a partially-ground-smooth top

I'm pretty certain without any real proof that the rubber on the stem versions do not predate the metal only stem versions. What year are you placing those at?

I think those are at least 40 years old. I don't ever recall seeing that top, as shown in the photo. Before being bought out by Johns Manville, they don't have an all-brass popup body. Once Royal Coach appeared, a new stem was designed to fit inside the sch 80 nipples that were becoming commonplace.

from another eBay auction comes some Aqua Dial spray heads, these looking much more like the Moody version
