Default FM # 1 Eclipse

Need some information. I got a Fm # 1 Eclipse. On the hopper the seems at one time there was a tag. I have never seen a # 1 with a tag. Did FM put tags on the Eclipse? If so where can I get one?

My 1-A Eclypse dosn't have a tag or any place that looks like it had a tag. If yours is an Eclypse 1 it might be different. But I have not read about anyone having a tag on theirs.

Mine has a brass dealer tag with the name of the Canadian dealer who originally sold it. Bill Klein

My No.1, 1A and No.2 Eclipse engines have all had dealers plates on them. The 1A still has its Queensland distributor plate on it while the ones from my other two engines are missing. They would have had one on them like this:

I don't think F-M put plates on them themselves.
