Both of these double enders have Sargent irons. The one on the left has a football logo on the iron, and the one on the right has the standard squared off Sargent logo. Note the differences in both the bodies, and the caps. So, my question is...

Are both of them Sargents, or do I have an oddball that someone put a Sargent iron on? The body, and cap, on the right, do not match any other double ender casting in my inventory.

The football logo with a line in the middle is a type 1, the football logo with USA in it is type 2, the later logos varied. So I'd guess you have 2 Sargents that are completely different vintage. Bit that's just a guess.

Well, this latest one came off ebay. I bought it because it was different than the Sargent I already had. I've got a union double ender that has a lever cap, so if a union comes up that has the tensioning wheel, cheap, I'll grab that too. Pretty much got all the double enders. Still need to round up a Stanley 131 though.

The 131's show up once in awhile. I've got three - all different. There's a couple near the bottom of this page:
