Post 1462H Postrig - Notes

  1. Post sold the Hemmi 159 as the 1462H Postrig from 1949. This rule has the "Made in Occupied Japan" mark which Hemmi phased out in late 1950 or early 1951. At this time they began using a two character date code on their rules. This rule was made in either 1949 or 1950 before the adoption of date codes.
