Also got this today. Just wiped the scum off it and shampooed the knot. Shed a few hairs in the beginning but not anymore than 2 or 3. Never seen this markings on a Simpson before.

This is the first Duke I have ever owned and I have to say it is by far my favorite Simpson model.

Excuse the knot, it is still wet from shampooing.

Superb brush. Lathing work is top notch. Stan Archer is my guess.

Congratulations on a great find! That's a magnificent brush. I particularly like the vintage typography.

Thanks everyone. This ones a keeper. Used it yesterday and the knot is perfect. Nice and soft and a little scrubby, just how I like them. Put a little finger nail polish on what remains of the label to preserve it.
