IBM had 4 known subcontractors for triggers, H&R Machine was one of them and the reported markings were HR I would assume this to be where the H and R are joined but have not observed one yet.
The HR marking is also reported in Reisch , but not HR B.
I have not found the HR B marking listed anywhere else.

Recently a member reported a trigger marked HR B
It was sent to me to examine and photograph.
The B is sharp and clearly evident.
At this point I believe that both marks are on one stamp. The reason it may well have gone unreported was that the stamp was struck at an angle causing the B to be faint. Same can be said for the S for standard products.

If you have either of these marks as well as just HR I ask that you examine further and report your findings. I would be interested in variances in the space of marks


Lets she who has sharp eyes, Anything else you notice? Please comment

Dan, here are a couple of pictures of an HR trigger from one of my IBMs.





Differences I see in the pics you posted are the horizontal line crossing the HR angles downward in the R and the angled leg of the R appears curved on your SH R trigger.

Trigger from a late IBM.

Now in my phone I see what looks like a ghost of a B, but on computer I do not.
One trick I found with getting the ghosts out is to shine a flashlight at item height across the markings to create shadows. A little futzing around sometimes gets them out of the (or into) the shadow.
