Hi Bill,

Looks like a 784-139 OT to me.

Hi Brian,

That's what I thought, thanks.
Any idea how I could date it?

Hard to tell without some kind of date stamp. I would have to say anywhere from the late 60's into the 70's.

My guess is ealy 70s

Up to 69 they had two hole bell covers, from 70/71 (not exactly sure they had 6 hole covers (like yours but no date stamp)

You see date stamps from 75 or so (unless people have earlier ones?)
