Ludlow Valve Mfg. Co. - Troy, NY
List 75s - Part 3 (wide or no border oval logo on barrel)

  List 75: Logo is 4" width oval with NO border
This group is believed to be the next step in the evolution of the 1 pc. barrel List 75 model.
  • Note the lack of the quotation marks on either side of Ludlow.
  • The oval of this logo has NO border. The two logos per hydrant can be found on the front & back of the barrel.
  • The upper barrel below the bonnet lacks the two 'nut pockets' found on most earlier List 75s. This is also the case for all subsequent versions of the List 75.
  • The appropriate bonnet for this group of List 75s may be without a patent date.

      List 75-0: logo is 4" width oval with wide border
    This group continues with a two piece barrel and is believed to be the last step in the evolution of the List 75 ... called the List 75-0. This group was produced into the 1960s.
  • The external difference between the List 75-0 and the last List 75 is the different bonnet design which has exposed bonnet holddown nuts/studs. The operating nut umbrella is also much larger; similar to that of the List 90.
  • Note that the logo remains the same as the last List 75. The two logos per hydrant can be found on the front & back of the barrel.
