| The original Pyrene. Here are it's distinct features.
1. The fill cap is located in the front. A winged type nut with a button/vent.
Not a hex nut in the back like most other fire extinguishers.
2. The handle is one piece. All other models have a pin in them.
3. The indented circles (top and bottom) are rounded.
4. The top of the label is embossed, but no color. Just brass.
5. It has the indented elongated ribbed back.
6. Has dates on it, but no actual patent number.
1. Different label design.
2. Top and bottom ribs more squared off.
3. Same ribbed back as above.
4. The fill cap is now located in the back.
5. Hex bolt head design for the fill cap.
6. Pin in the handle top.
7. Reveals a patent number of October 6, 1928.

There were many different Pyrene extinguishers manufactured with
a wide variety of labels. They were also manufactured in several
different countries as well. Don't think any Pyrene is the right
model for your restoration. Research this one wisely. Their
patent dates are widely misleading as to their actual manufacturing.
