Also, thanks Brian for making what appears to be such a lopsided trade! My wife kept saying, "I can't believe you traded that dinky little red grill [Red Wood Dale 18] for this huge one [a copper mist Imperial Sequoia]." She's probably right.

Oh, this dinky little, nearly flawless Red Wood Dale MLH 18?



In my eyes, Brian got the better deal...  ;)

Hahaha, yeah there's that little old thing! She is a beauty, but she's in better hands that will put her to use!

Upon further review (pulling up my own camera roll) This Woody Easterner has the later rounded bowl strap handles...






For some reason I didn't snap a pic of the other red 18 Wood Dale that Brian has that used to belong to the family of Dan NY. Brian or anyone have any closeups of that one? Bowl handle shape? I can't believe I didn't snap a shot of that one I'm so mad at myself right now... [emoji17]

Here are a couple photos I took. Looks like it has square end straps to me.

Thanks for posting that Dan. Yes that one is slightly older then with the squares off bowl straps.

I remember that one too - from last year's meetup. @Craig did 18.5s ever use the same metal handle as the lids from this era? I'm thinking not, but somewhere in the dark recesses of my mind I recall they did. Probably just a dream...

@Craig
Which is older, the square ends or the rounded ends? I always assumed that the square ends were older, but it sounds like I had it backwards? Thanks

Square ended MBH 18s are older.
