Wiley Horne--So. Calif.
I'll have photos of these irons up in the coming days, and perhaps that will be of some help. I was thinking of the font used in the 1-8 numbering on the irons, but then I looked at some Butcher irons which I believe to be fairly old--they have the W [crown]R mark, and they have no numbers at all! Maybe numbering was a later practice!
