This one I bought in June 2010 For $50 at a junkyard not knowing if it worked or not... Well it does, and very well.



And this one I just pick up today, a 1952 Model. And it works like a top

My mother is still using hers. It looks like your first photo. They do not dry out food the same as the new frost free.

Here are close ups of the IHC emblem and the International Harvestor handle on my fridge. Mine is a little different from Grease Monkey's. I am pretty sure that they were only sold by IH dealers and maybe IH traveling salesmen.

I've obviously forgotten how to add pictures again. Never mind........
