A rare Faribault comes home to Minnesota

BrassTag.jpg
'Right: This brass tag is all that remains of another engine made at Faribault, No. 729. It appears that the number four was superimposed over the two to show what horsepower this engine was supposed to be. Notice how the design is different from the tag on the actual engine (above). Harlan Hjermstad owns this tag, held by Dick Sunsdahl. Far right: An end view of the 4 HP Faribault engine in a newly-refurbished addition to the State Bank of Faribault, Minn. '
