    Really cool description manual. The insignia on the plug made me look twice and then remembered the time frame of manufacturing.
    Was it in Germany back then? Had to be.

    That insignia was a trademark in the USA.....maybe Trane?......after 1940 or so it was not in use much here anymore.

    Whatever the brand, that company made brass valves and fittings and you find that marking on a few things.

    There are two versions of the Swastika sign, one is clockwise and the other counter clockwise.
    The opposite of what you see was very common in the east (India etc), and considered a sign of good fortune.

    Wow. Good to know. Thanks for the info.

    I also new that insignia was used by some American native tribe(s) long before.

    This floor design is in a 1918 high end department store in Nebraska. Just one room has this and owner does not let the public use it.

    These have the opposite "spin" to them.

    Old, large Burnham Cast Iron boilers had a very prominent Swastika on the top front section. Keep in mind, Herr Hitler did not come to power until 1933. The Third Reich did not get really active until 1939 with the Invasion of Poland. The world 🌎 did not get the Full picture of Nazi Abuse and Treachery until 1945-1949 and the Nuremberg trials and all the proceedings and discovery.   Mad 🐕 Dog

    I wonder what the emissions from those radiators were like?

    It is a pity that the swastika remains the sole remaining property of the Third Reich when it was and is used for honorable purposes over the ages.
