The Junior (loc-nob) was the standard issue beginning in 1923. The Jan-2-23 patent date on it is bogus. I think that Dietz anticipated a quick issue when they filed patent application in late 1922, and ordered globes to be made with that date, because the application is based on the Fitzall Loc-Nob patent of 1914. However the actual patent was not issued until 12-4-23 and that patent was put on the Fitzall Loc-Nob around 1925.
