Hi Glen,
Bob Kaune’s image of a very early Type 1 pre-lateral 422 (FYI, 418 and 422 have same frog/cutters) is one of the main reasons I wonder about the early lever caps. Bob's 422 has a plain lever cap with NO Sargent Logo, nor does it have ANY logo on the base. Other than mine having the lateral lever, they look very similar. The low beaded knobs are also indicative of earlier models. Also, the #418VBM (the next next iteration of this model) I got off of eBay also has the low beaded knob.
