Posted by: Scott TITLE: AGE / VALUE:morrow hubs
does anyone know where I can find a date chart for Morrow hubs? or does anyone know how to date them My hub has this on it just like this:
Eclipse Machine Division
Made In Elmyra NY USA
N3 36 13
The front hub is a New Departure. both are factory painted black and came off a Dayton/Huffman bike.

FYI I thought I~d share what I got from two e-mails. the first one told me:
"N3 indicates hub was manufactured between July and September of 1943 which was most likely assembled on a 1944 bike."
the second said:
The N3 on your hub is the date code. The letter is the year (A=1930,...)
both people came up with 1943 for my date of manufacture. I hope you don~t mind I posted your info, but I thought it might help the rest of us who didn~t know this stuff.

I believe there is a letter stamped in the casingwhich identifies the year. I have a morrow on my girls elgin with a letter of F, it should be around 35 or 36
