1930 – Riechel & Bredhoff


5247 Wentworth Avenue

Riechel & Bredhoff marks have two configurations. This is what I call the tight arch, in which the maker’s name curves right up against the racetrack outline. In the easy arch, the maker’s name makes a straighter arc. The tight arch appears throughout the range of dates I have, from 1921 to 1951. The easy arch appears in 1924, 1929 through 1933, and 1940 so far. I need to pay closer attention to these. This particular mark appears next door to an easy-arch mark from the same year, both of them from October.
