Sears Economy Engine Questions

Reader Carl Davis sends in pictures of a Sears Economy branded engine built by Briggs & Stratton, asking for any information on the type and when it may have been built. Not being Briggs & Stratton specialists we can’t be 100 percent, but it looks to be a rope-start version of the 2-3 hp Model B, which was built from 1934-1948. Can any readers tell Carl for certain what engine he has and when it was made?
