The Silens Messor was made for over 80 years with gradual changes to the design. The majority had a cast iron badge which doubled as the rear-roller scraper-plate but it's highly unusual to find an example with anything but the standard wording. However, this badge also incorporates the name of the ironmonger that sold it - Parker, Winder and Allchurch of Birmingham. This company was established in the 1830s and only recently went out of business (as far as we can tell).
