I quickly grabbed out a lamp bracket drawer we have at the shop and saw quite an array of stamping differences on the headset lamp brackets for Raleigh. The heron is sometimes more defined, other times less, and the font size also changed. Of course, tooling stamping these brackets over the decades of productions wore out and were replaced, it would be an interesting study to try and define and date the differences. That would be in the world of banal minutiae, well at least to most.

  1. Do you know of any companies that make current square chrome box style lamps that fit on these brackets? I've been looking all over the place, and even the originals are near impossible to find.
