Looking for Lead on Myers Pump

 Myers Pump 

We recently purchased an old Myers pump. My husband is going to mount it atop our well to look like it would be pumping water, but it will be strictly decorative. In looking at it, we can see a bit of the information on it and would like to find out more of the history of the pump. The castings are not clear but we think they are:

Myers Glass Valve 944 AUG 7 83  

1039, 1050 The Myers, 1257, 1379 

While we were paying for the pump, a man was looking at it to buy it, not knowing we had just paid for it. He said that it was a Myers, it was old, and it was a great pump in its day. That’s what encouraged us to try to find out more of the history. If anyone has any information, we would greatly appreciate hearing it.
