I appreciate the gesture but I woudnt know anymore about its history seeing it closer.
Babbitt did get pics and thinks its one of their blanks from the old days before the modified the blank for McGregory.
From this time period there is no one still at Babbitt. They know their own history pretty well so if they had maintained a sizable contract with Santy they would know.
...but to them and to me it is likely from Babbitt and worked by Runyon.
It might not have great monetary value (though I dont know for a fact) but I have a hunch you have an interesting piece of history in your hands.
