"SMS" Marking is for Short Facing length (vs "M"). This early example has the crooked SMS visible only as MS, which is common on the [offset] marked eras.

WWS is the second owner and it was well loved. It has the denim markings on the table, as is appropriate for the 1st generation. They are barely visible on the lower table due to some prior work leveling the table.

It has a short shank and longer body with "Berg Larsen" signature that is straight, not slanted. Very early era.
