Default Speaking of rare!

I am no expert on flatheads by any means, but I have never heard of, or seen a set of these heads before. IMG_3718.jpeg
Donít know if this picture will come out. Whatís the story behind these?

Sorry, had to copy on my phone.
Left head, S.A.E on one end, firing order on the other end.
I’ll show the other head if someone guesses it.

A friend of mine just sent me the pictures of his newly built hot rod, and those are his heads. I had just never knew the company name, or heard of it in flathead discussions.

That brown/orange thing is the canister oil filter mounted to the head between #3 and #4 plugs.

Saw a set of those heads at Hershey a couple years ago. Couple young guys had them in their wagon, having just bought them.
