After a short drive in my 1924 cut-off pickup this morning, I noticed that one of my headlight lens retaining rings has some script stamped on it:

Ford
Broun

The other ring is not marked at all.

Any significance? :-)

The nickeled brass rims on 26/27 Fords are almost always marked Ford Brown. Guess Brown was a supplier of the rims and maybe other lamp parts?

Somewhere in my stash, I have at least one, maybe two steel rings that are stamped Ford Brown. Dave

That Brown is the Jno Brown Lamp Co.
